Review Text

  • By juicy mclucy on 13 April 2008

    I used this (and the sister txts on tudor history) for my A-level and subsequently for my BA.At A-level it followed the syllabus and was essential reading, containing all the necessary information, sources and interpretations. The text itself was often described by my classmates as too in depth, but the case actually was that it contained a lot of information and view points, more like a degree level source. The information is not given to you on a plate, you have to read and sift through the text to take from it what you need, it guaranteed that there will be ten times as much as the average A-level student needs. But for those aiming for the top grades or just those who have a true love of this era this is essential reading.At degree level, this text was less essential, but it did prove incredably useful. It was a concise source where you could go to find the general and overall picture, whilst it also provided you with the basic historiography and a direction to head in for further research.In conclusion, this book provides an essential starting point for degree students (especially those who have not previously studied the topics discussed), and for an irreplaceable text for an early modern A-level student.

    Currently using this textbook for A-Level history, it has all the necessary knowledge for many different exam-board specifications in a small volume. Some people may find the prose a bit too dense but for me the information was distilled to very readable level.

    A great book for all those who are either studying this era in UK history or who just have an interest in it.

    Not too deep, yet not too shallow. Well written and informative without big long words that ultimately mean nothing.Cracking good read and overview of This monarch. I am currently reading the companion volume about the reformation etc.Thank you Mr Randell.
