In this revised and updated edition of The Tudors: A Very Short Introduction, John Guy offers a compelling and authoritative guide to all aspects of the Tudor period. From politics, religion, and economics, to gender, art, and culture, this is a fascinating exploration of the leaders of the day and the culture of the time.

Guy looks beyond this bunch of merry and not so merry monarchs to give a concise guide to the whole Tudor world from politics, religion and economics to gender, art and culture.

Recognised as one of Britain's leading historians on the Tudor period, he lecturers and speaks widely at literary festivals and on radio and television. He was the Winner of the 2004 Whitbread Biography Award and of the 2005 Marsh Biography Award.
