Winner of the Roland Bainton Prize for the best reference work in 2004, A Companion to Tudor Britain provides an authoritative overview of scholarship and debates about this period. The book looks at the British Isles in their entirety, exploring what was common and what was distinct to the sovereign kingdoms of England and Scotland, the client kingdom of Ireland, and the principality of Wales.

An emphasis on major political, cultural, social, intellectual, religious, and economic themes is complemented by discussion of less common subjects, such as the landscape of the British Isles, the relationship of cultural forms to social and political issues, and the role of scientific inquiry. The contributors represent a broad range of historiographical and methodological perspectives. Their contributions define the current state of their fields and indicate the likely directions of future work.
