The Tudor period was a turbulent one, characterised by political strife, religious change, wars, economic catastrophe, social disorder and rebellion.

Paul Thomas provides a lively account of these issues and examines the challenges they presented to the Tudor monarchs.

Drawing upon recent research, 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.

Authority and disorder in Tudor Times contains a range of primary sources.

Cambridge Perspectives in History is a series which comprises a number of core texts on major periods of British and European History, and theme texts which explore particular topics in great depth.
