CHOICE Review

A revision of the author's Longman Companion to the Tudor Age (1995), this specialized work includes biographies, genealogies, chronologies, lists, and maps. It covers the political, ecclesiastical, and cultural history of the era, and largely omits diplomatic and military events. Noted historian O'Day (Open Univ.) provides an updated bibliography and an enlarged chronology and biographical entries. Chapters on local government and the courts and commissions include useful facts and descriptions of governing bodies not easily found elsewhere. The penultimate chapter, an excellent survey of controversial debates in the field, shows balance. On the debit side, the biographies include errors (e.g., the entry on Henry Howard cites 1541 as the year of Catherine Howard's execution). The organization of the text is awkward, and the heavy use of abbreviations and staccato style in the chronologies retards comprehension. A bibliography of the major primary sources of the period would have been welcome and would have increased the work's value. The extreme difference in price between the cloth and paperback versions cannot be justified. Summing Up: Recommended. Only libraries supporting upper-division undergraduates through faculty/researchers in historical research in the Tudor period. P. J. Jones University of Arkansas
