"Europe and England in the Sixteenth Century" covers political, social, religious and economic history from the late Renaissance to Mary Stuart and Philip II. Structured in three parts, the Western European Environment, The Rise of Great Monarchies and the Crisis of the Monarchies, the book is unique in its coverage of both England and Europe, indicating how events on one side of the Channel influenced those on the other side.
Drawing on numerous years of classroom experience, "Europe and England in the Sixteenth Century" is gracefully written and informed by the most recent and best scholarship in the field. Its excellent coverage of important topics is augmented by lucid historiographical essays, biographical sketches of major figures, clearly structured genealogical charts, chronologies, full glossaries of key words, and surveys of changing historiographical debates, including contemporary issues.
""Europe and England in the Sixteenth Century is gracefully written and informed by the most recent and best scholarship in the field....I especially liked the author's strategy of using significant source materials."
-Roger Schlesinger, Washington State University
"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 Calgary
"Clearly written, sensibly organised and balanced in its judgements."
-Susan Doran, St Mary's University College, Surrey
"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
