This collection features the publication of Sir Geoffrey Elton's articles and reviews, published between 1982 and 1990, in continuation of three previous volumes. Volume IV contains a group of pieces on sixteenth-century government and politics, and more especially on aspects of the Reformation, on the continent as well as in England, with some attention to Martin Luther and an essay on Lancelot Andrewes. Several pieces deal with parliament under the Tudors. A second group, 'on Historians', reprints an appraisal of Sir Herbert Butterfield and three substantial reviews on historiographical problems.

'This is the fourth volume to be published of Sir Geoffrey R. Elton's papers and reviews and is as challenging as ever ... The subject matter is wide ranging from the government of Elizabeth and James, the origins of Human Rights and the Liberties of Englishmen through the Parliaments of Elizabeth. His analysis of Thomas More is of great interest, for he argues most logically that the image of More was created by his family with the view of early canonisation. With the view distorted by the family's published letters and memories, it is difficult to isolate the character from the image. Elton achieves this with his usual elegance.' Allan Fletcher, Open History
