Published by Manchester University Press

Politics Culture and Society in Early Modern Britain MUP

Reassesses the national war effort during the Elizabethan wars against Spain (1585-1603). Drawing on a mass of hitherto neglected sources, it finds a political system in much better health than has been thought, revising many existing assumptions about the weaknesses of the state in the face of military change.
