Reformation England 1480-1642 provides a clear and accessible narrative account of the English Reformation, explaining how historical interpretations of its major themes have changed and developed over the past few decades, where they currently stand - and where they seem likely to go. A great deal of interesting and important new work on the English Reformation has appeared recently, such as lively debates on Queen Mary's role, work on the divisive character of Puritanism, and studies on music and its part in the Reformation. The spate of new material indicates the importance and vibrancy of the topic, and also of the continued need for students and lecturers to have some means of orientating themselves among its thickets and by-ways. This revised edition takes into account new contributions to the subject and offers the author's expert judgment on their meaning and significance.
Following the formula of other titles within this highly successful series, Reformation England 1480-1642 examines all aspects of the English Reformation. Providing a unique textbook treatment of `The Long Reformation', this is a vital text for students interested in this area.

About the Author
Peter Marshall is Professor of History at the University of Warwick, where he has taught since 1994. A leading specialist on the religious and cultural history of early modern Britain, his previous books include Beliefs and the Dead in Reformation England (2003), Religious Identities in Henry VIII's England (2006), and The Reformation: A Very Short Introduction (2009).
This second edition has been expanded and rewritten, primarily to take account of the plethora of recent research on the Reformation...it is a necessary update, as a central consideration of this textbook is how historians have interpreted - and continue to interpret - the reform process. (The coverage of the secondary works is strikingly comprehensive.)...Students will find the historiographical elements of this book useful [and] the introductions and conclusions to each chapter...[It] retains its enviable position as an indispensable and thought-proviking textbook. * Times Higher Education Supplement *
