Product Description

Englishmen greeted the accession to the throne of Henry V111 with more than the usual chorus of praise and anticipation, yet few offered any solution to the problems of the commonwealth or espected more than the maintenance of a precarious stability. Half a century later, however, his daughter Elizabeth inherited a realm which had experienced a revolution Reform, not a dream but a rational prospect, had become the spirit of the age: it also provides the theme for this remarkable history of the reigns of Henry, Edward and Mary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still well worth reading 5 Feb 2013
By Sixtus

Much historical research has altered the picture Elton reveals in his old textbook, yet in some places (as he immodestly claimed!) his judgements were "ahead of the research", in that tentative propositions in EUT have been confirmed by the work of later scholars.
Where EUT is still immensely valuable is in encapsulating the "Elton view" - of Thomas Cromwell and of the
Tudor revolution in government. No one can be in any doubt on where he stands on these - and many other -issues. He provides a yardstick against which new interpretations may be measured, thus even where he now seems wrong (quite often in fact) his words provide clear targets at which to aim. No other textbook has ever - or is ever likely to - serve this purpose. Long may it remain in print!
