Susan Brigden's book is a wonderful corrective to this, providing an overview of the whole period, from the grey penury of Henry VII through to the dog days of Elizabeth's reign. In fact, I'd say this is the best one volume history of the Tudors that I've read. Brigden is particularly good on the religious upheavals that made the Tudor era the definitive break between medieval and modern eras, and the revolution in world views that brought about and was caused by these changes.
New Worlds, Lost Worlds brings the atmosphere and events of this great epoch to life. Exploring the underlying religious motivations for the savage violence and turbulence of the period-from Henry VIII's break with Rome to the overwhelming threat of the Spanish Armada-Susan Brigden investigates the actions and influences of such near-mythical figures as Elizabeth I, Thomas More, Bloody Mary, and Sir Walter Raleigh.

New Worlds, Lost Worlds" is part of the Penguin History of Britain series, meaning that it should stand alone as a history of the relevant period, the Tudor period, 1485-1603. I do not think it does this. It has some strong elements - Brigden's presentation is very good with regard to religious history, and at showing how each Tudor monarch related to key political actors, mainly the aristocratic class. But in terms of military, economic and some aspects of the political system, it is not what I hoped.

At least two generations of young minds were introduced to the tensions and challenges that characterized life in England during the sixteenth century in S. T. Bindoff's Tudor England (1950).
