Margo Todd
Psychology Press, 1995 - 279 pages
Few periods of English history have been so subject to 'revisionism' as the Tudors and Stuarts This volume offers a quick introduction to the complex & current historiographical debates about politics and religion in Early Modern England.Few periods of English history have been so subject to 'revisionism' as the Tudors and Stuarts. In the last decade, both religious and political historians have undermined the most basic assumptions about the transition from Reformation to Revolution. Even more recently, 'anti-revisionists' have seriously questioned the revised version.Starting with Elizabeth I and going right through to the Civil War, Margo Todd has selected pieces which represent all the main arguments of the debate, which has become extremely complex. The articles will allow students to see at first hand how historians use sources to interpret the past.
