Descrizione del libro

The second title in the new four volume Brief History of Britain series - a new look at the Tudors and Stuarts by one of Britain's leading historians.

Sinossi

From the death of Richard III on Bosworth Field in 1485 to the execution of Charles I, after the Civil Wars of 1642-48, England was transformed by two Dynasties.

Firstly the Tudors, who won the crown on the battlefield and changed both the nature of kingship but also the nation itself. England became a Protestant nation and began to establishment itself as a trading power; facing down impossible odds it defeated its enemies on land and sea. Yet after a century Elizabeth I died with no heir and the crown was passed to the Stuarts, who were keen to remould the kingdom in their own image.

Leading Historian, Ronald Hutton brilliantly recreates the political landscape over this early modern period and shows how the modern nation was forged in these anxious, transformative years. Combining skilful pen portraits of the leading figures, culture, economics and accounts of everyday life, he reveals insights in this key era in our nation's story.

This the second book in the four volume Brief History of Britain which brings together some of the leading historians to tell our nation�s story from the Norman Conquest of 1066 to the present-day. Combining the latest research with accessible and entertaining story telling, it is the ideal introduction for students and general readers.

3.0 su 5 stelle an adequate survey 10 agosto 2012
Di Don - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I found this volume to be not quite as thorough as Nicholas Vincent's first volume in the set. Ronald Hutton also spends time talking about the opinions of various historians of each period covered. That is interesting academically, but not particularly interesting for the popular reader who, "just want's the facts, ma'am". I also felt that the chapters, especially early on, were more in the form of individual essays with less of a feeling of a cohesive history about them.

However, having said that, I learned things I hadn't known before, especially about Charles I and the short-lived republic. (This may be due to the deluge of information that makes most folks fairly familiar with Henry VIII and Elizabeth.) The author does a good job of painting the skills and weaknesses of all the rulers of the period. I would have liked to see a more full discussion of how people lived during these times, but one can't include everything in a survey of this sort.

The annotative bibliography at the end of the book, as in the first volume is a helpful resource for further study. And in the final analysis, the book makes me want to read more about the period (if I ever have time), so I think I have to rate the book as a success, in spite of my wanting it to be more than it is.
5.0 su 5 stelle Good, focused history 22 novembre 2014
Di Bradley Nelson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
This is perhaps the best book of the series. Obviously this is just an overview history and tends to focus on the key events. It is still focused on kings/queens, as they drove much of the events. This is a fascinating period in British history, the start of the Tudors. This is very well written and does a good job of not getting too bogged down in details. For Americans like myself who did not grow up learning British history, there are a few references that are obscure, but for the most part, this book does a good job of presenting an approachable account of this period of history.
