    1 thought on “England Under the Tudors”

    1. Excellent and solid source of background reading for a knowledge of the Tudor period, stretching from Henry VII to Elizabeth I. Elton covers many areas: politics, government, legislation, religion, trade, economy, society, literature, education and naval exploration, among others. In fact, his mastery of facts and details is so encyclopedic as to provoke a feeling of information overload. He seems to be fair-minded on most issues--although his description of England's conflicts with Ireland put [...]

    2. I binge read this while in bed with the flu - possibly not the best head space for a valid evaluation? However I thought it did a really excellent job of covering the field - notwithstanding the revisionism that is going on in Elizabethan history - seeking manipulation of the political system from the likes of Duke of Bedford etc

    3. Sir Geoffrey R. Elton has created quite a paradox in the fact that this text is not for the casual reader but it is an excellent overview of the Tudor era. Written in the 1950s the syntax is sophisticated and the style of language is one with which historians will be familiar. Of the most interest to this reviewer was the coverage Elton devoted throughout to comparing Henry VII and Elizabeth I.

    4. Not very readable. I'm torn between one and two stars. I'd rate it 1.5 if I could. This is a secularized, anti-religious view of Tudor England. Why would someone with Mr. Elton's negative opinions on organized religion choose to write about a timeperiod when most of humanity believed so deeply and passionately in God and Church?I don't claim to have read the entire history. It's a reference text which I pull down and refer to when I want to know more about a particular event, issue or person fro [...]

    5. A solid, delightfully written and thorough overview of the period in English history dominated by that remarkable family that starred Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. The emphasis of the book is politics, religious matters (this was the period of the break with Rome and the establishment of England as a Protestant country) and foreign affairs, and how they all combined. There are also chapters on economics, culture, legal matters, administration and social relations. Elton makes this all an easy read [...]

    6. Review - Although some of Elton's opinions are a little outdated nowadays, it is still a very interesting read, and an excellent overview of the Tudor period. I found it particularly interesting to read because, having read a lot around the subject, I can see how opinions have changed and developed. This makes it particularly interesting from a historiographical point of view. Nevertheless, all of the important (and not so important events) are in here, from the Perkin Warbeck rebellion, through [...]

    7. This text is definitely worth looking at from a historiographical point of view. However if used to gain insight into this period, many statements have to be taken with a grain of salt as his bias in relation to religion, politics, and misogyny, especially towards Elizabeth I is clearly evident.
