First published in 1955 and never out of print, this wonderfully written text by one of the great historians of the twentieth century has guided generations of students through the turbulent history of Tudor England.

Now in its third edition, England Under the Tudors charts a historical period that saw some monumental changes in religion, monarchy, government and the arts. Elton's classic and highly readable introduction to the Tudor period offers an essential source of information from the start of Henry VII's reign to the death of Elizabeth I.

A thorough account of Tudors, quite hard to read in places but gives an excellent and greatly detailed account which I found extremely useful.

Review: England Under the Tudors (Folio Society History of England #5)

User Review  - Amy - Goodreads

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.
