"Written especially for North American students, Early Modern England 1485–1714 is an informative and engaging survey text that will draw undergraduates into the period. Bucholz and Key provide a compelling narrative as well as interpretive perspectives that reflect the most recent scholarship." Gary De Krey, St. Olaf College <!--end-->


"This text is a delight to read. One is immediately struck by the sparkling yet highly accessible prose. Bucholz and Key designed it specifically for the American college student, who will undoubtedly find it a pleasure rather than a burden to read. Finally, the Queen’s English, American-style." Melinda Zook, Purdue University

"This excellent book is consciously designed for students in North American universities who are studying this period for the first time, but its qualities are such that British students will find it a remarkably effective and well-sustained synthesis. The narrative is readable, fluent and balanced. ...Throughout, the authors, both of whom are vastly experienced teachers as well as being active research scholars, have managed to delineate detail effectively without obscuring the narrative flow... it is, as they say in their conclusion, 'a terrific story', and they have told it terrifically well." David L. Smith, Selwyn College, Cambridge

"This excellent book is consciously designed for students in North American universities who are studying this period for the first time, but its qualities are such that British students will find it a remarkably effective and well-sustained synthesis. The narrative is readable, fluent and balanced." History

"Complementing its accessibility, Early Modern England is comprehensive and true to recent scholarly conclusions. Bucholz and Key have produced a useful narrative for the present generation of those being introduced to English history in the period. It is engaging from first to last and merits close review by faculty across the United States seeking a strong classroom text." Albion

"Robert Bucholz and Newton Key have written Early Modern England, 1485-1714: A Narrative History to fill the need for an authoritative, one volume textbook covering the Tudor and Stuart eras that is written especially for an American audience. They have succeeded in their goal." H-Albion

"Early Modern England is informative and ... a pleasure to read." Sixteenth Century Journal
