The Tudor period was turbulent, characterised by political strife, religious change, wars, economic catastrophe, social disorder and rebellion. Paul Thomas examines the challenges they presented to Tudor monarchs. He considers the extent to which the Tudor government sought to establish lasting order, and the means by which authority and order were imposed and maintained at all levels in society. Topics covered include: law and power; the church, religion and authority; informal authority; the mid-Tudor crisis and Tudor rebellions; the Celtic nations; and Elizabeth I and the recovery of the monarchy. The text contains a range of primary sources.
The AS textbooks are ideal for students who have never studied the history of these periods before. they provide detailed background information on the period studied, and include notes explaining key terms, lists of significant dates, and focus questions to consolidate learning.
All of the AS titles have been endorsed by OCR for use with their AS specification for history, and several of the titles will also be appropriate for Edexcel and AQA study units.
Many of the books include a seperate document section, where students can study and evaluate a range of source material.
Shorter themed books explore particular topics in greater depth. The topics examined can be linked with the period covering foundation texts, providing students and teachers with flexibillity in structuring A Level courses.
