EUROPE AND ENGLAND IN THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY
‘T.A. Morris has succeeded admirably in writing a clear, accessible, and up-to-date survey of sixteenth-century European history. The text itself is clearly written and makes comprehensible some extremely complex events and phenomena.’ Mark Konnert, University of CalgaryEurope and England in the Sixteenth Century is informed by the most recent and best scholarship in the field… I especially liked the author’s strategy of using significant source materials.’ Professor Roger Schlesinger, Washington State University‘A well-written and helpful text. The balance between historiographical debate and the provision of information is good…and the juxtaposition of European and English history provides a valuable aid to the understanding of sixteenth-century themes.’ John Ross, Hemel Hempstead School, London‘Coverage of early-modern European history is wide-ranging and comprehensive. Particularly valuable are the summaries of historical debates at the outset of each chapter and the many tables, maps and diagrams. The book is clearly written, sensibly organized and balanced in its judgements.’ Susan Doran, St Mary’s University College, SurreyThis innovative textbook uniquely combines an integrated survey of European and English history in the sixteenth century. The book is structured in three parts: the Western European Environment, the Rise of the Great Monarchies and the Crisis of the Great Monarchies. It covers political, social, religious and economic history from the late Renaissance to the end of the reigns of Elizabeth I and Philip II. It recognises the amount of common belief and interest between the British Isles and Western Europe in the century of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation and indicates how events were linked. Key features of the book are:
• Colourful and informative biographical sketches of major figures
• Clearly structured genealogical charts, chronologies and full glossaries
• Surveys of changing historiographical debates, including contemporary issues
• Documentary exercises related to examination questions
• Lavish illustrations including maps, tables, photographs and line drawings.

Terry Morris is Director of Studies at University College School in Hampstead, North London. He has taught history to A-Level for over 25 years. He is the author of European History, 1848-1945 (1985).
