3.0 out of 5 stars A good foundation
This book gives you all the background you will need to study an AS/A2 course on Henry VII. It will provide you with hundreds of useful facts and introduce you to all the key-players of the period.

However, analytically it lacks substance. To write a quality answer, more than just Pendrill is required. In places it is extremely good, but in others it glosses...

This review is from: Heinemann Advanced History: The English Reformation 1485-1558 (Paperback)
This book gives you all the background you will need to study an AS/A2 course on Henry VII. It will provide you with hundreds of useful facts and introduce you to all the key-players of the period.

However, analytically it lacks substance. To write a quality answer, more than just Pendrill is required. In places it is extremely good, but in others it glosses over with worrying nonchalance.

Therefore, it is worth buying, but to achieve a decent grade, a history book is required, not just a textbook, such as this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed!, 31 Jan 2004
This review is from: Heinemann Advanced History: The English Reformation 1485-1558 (Paperback)
I felt that seen as this book was bought as an aid for my 6th form history studies, that it simply did not have the depth that is required from a text book for that level. Although it makes some interesting points, I did not feel that it was any more informative than the text books that I had used for my GCSEs.
