5.0 out of 5 stars A useful, informative book to supplement the A level course, 22 Mar 2002
By A Customer
The book is ideal for extra background reading which is really important to achieve high marks. However, as the book is written with the course in mind it is focused upon the main areas of Henry VII's reign rather than suplus information, which can be confusing. The text incoporates a blend of historical facts and an analytical approach, pushing the reader towards questioning the issues for themselves. Each of the areas are divided into digestable chunks, for example council and parliament into four sections, highlighting the most important areas so that the prose is easy to follow.
Another useful aspect is the overall conclusion (although this is quite short) but nevertheless encompasses the most important points. Similarly there are documents in the index (such as Polydore Vergil),which are useful, providing primary sources that can be studied individually and incorporated into essays to show evidence of backgroun reading.There is a detailed list of good books to read as well, providing the die hard Henry VII enthusiast with even more scope.
