by Anna Whitelock

Tudor Queenship The Reigns of Mary and Elizabeth Press Reviews

Recommended. - CHOICE This is an excellent collection that prompts us to rethink much of what we thought we knew about both the reigns and the personalities of Mary and Elizabeth Tudor. - Greg Walker, Head of School, LLC and Masson Professor of English Literature, University of Edinburgh This volume is a landmark collection of essays which draws together an exciting range of new work by many of the leading scholars currently working on the two Tudor queens. Under Mary and Elizabeth the whole nature of English monarchy itself had to be fundamentally re-thought and worked out in important new ways. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in this process and all the cultural consequences which flowed from it. Tudor Queenship is an important and wide-ranging collection which will undoubtedly find a firm place both in university syllabi and on the shelves of scholars. - Paul E.J. Hammer, Professor of History, University of Colorado at Boulder
