Elizabeth I
"A sustained reflection on the nature of Elizabethan power that will
challenge historians for a long time to come" History Today
The reign of Elizabeth I was one of the most important periods of expansion and growth in British history, the so called 'Golden Age'.
This celebrated and influential study of Elizabeth reconsiders how she achieved this and the ways in which she exercised her power. Looking at her role in government and in the nation it:
examines Elizabeth in terms of her power rather than her policies
explores her relations with the statesman of her time
shows how she interacted with the key institutions of sixteenth century
political life.
As this invaluable account shows, in the Tudor age, it was hard enough to be a king; it was doubly hard to be a queen. Throughout her long reign, Elizabeth's target was survival. And she survived. This introduction to Elizabeth I tells us how.
Christopher Haigh is Student and Tutor in Modern History at Christ Church, and a lecturer in Modern History at the University of Oxford.
