About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1934, this is the second volume of Kenneth Pickthorn's two-volume assessment of the constitutional impact made by the first two Tudor kings, Henry VII and Henry VIII. This book contains Pickthorn's study of Henry VIII's reign, beginning with the rise and fall of Wolsey, and focuses primarily on the ways in which Henry's tumultuous reign affected the structures of British government for centuries to come. Carefully researched and fluently written, this text will be of value to anyone with an interest in sixteenth-century British government or the history of the British constitution.
