Product description


Providing detailed coverage of the main political and religious issues of the age, this new edition of Tudor and Stuart Britain has expanded sections on Ireland and Scotland, ensuring the text considers Britain as a whole. Taking into account recent research, there is also extra coverage of economic and social topics including trade and industry, the structure of society, the treatment of the poor, and the role of women. A guide to further reading lists the principal works published on the period since 1990, providing students with an excellent resource for extra research.

From the Back Cover

This is the third edition of what is considered the standard textbook on Tudor and Stuart Britain. A great deal of research has been done on this period since the second edition was published, and this third edition is fully updated to take account of all the recent developments in the area.

Roger Lockyer looks at the major themes of politics and religion and shows how the Tudors re-established a strong monarchy, building on foundations laid by their Yorkist predecessors. The accession of the Stuarts brought new strains as well as intensifying old ones, and the middle years of the seventeenth century saw the collapse of the monarchy and the temporary establishment of a republic in England. The book gives a clear view of the complex issues involved and an insight into their enduring popular interest.

In addition to detailed coverage of the main political and religious issues, this new edition contains expanded coverage of Ireland and Scotland and also of economic and social topics, including trade and industry, the structure of society, the treatment of the poor, and the role of women.

This revised and updated third edition of Tudor and Stuart Britain is the most up-to-date single volume survey of the subject. It provides students who are studying the Tudors and Stuarts for the first time with a clearly written and comprehensive introduction to the subject, and enables those already familiar with the period to bring themselves up to date with the latest interpretations.


Roger Lockyer has been both a schoolteacher and a university lecturer, having spent the greater part of his life teaching at Royal Holloway, University of London. His previous publications include The Early Stuarts: A Political History of England, 1603-1642, and James VI and Tudor Britain, 1485-1603, with Dan O’Sullivan. He is also the author of a major biography: George Villiers, first Duke of Buckingham (1592-1628).
