The Reign of Elizabeth I 1558-1603

Part of the Questions and Analysis in History Series


The Reign of Elizabeth I 1558-1603 by Stephen J. Lee

Covering the period from 1558-1603, The Reign of Elizabeth I looks at all the important aspects of the reign of the last of the Tudor monarchs. The volume gives students the critical tools to enable them to perform to their best ability, drawing together the main issues on each topic and providing an accessible guide to the period. Using extensive sources and historiography, Stephen J. Lee explores: * the religious settlement * government and foreign policy * the economy * Elizabeth's relationship with Parliament * society and culture. Also including a glossary of key terms and a helpful chronology, this is an essential tool for any student of British history.


'At the very least this book should be available in every library where students are examining Elizabeth's reign...' - History Teaching Review'
