The history of the British Isles is the story of four peoples linked together by a process of state building that was as much about far-sighted planning and vision as coincidence, accident and failure. It is a history of revolts and reversal, familial bonds and enmity, the study of which does much to explain the underlying tension between the nations of modern day Britain. The Making of the British Islesrecounts the development of the nations of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland from the time of the Anglo-French dual monarchy under Henry VI through the Wars of the Roses, the Reformation crisis, the reigns of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, the Anglo-Scottish dynastic union, the British multiple monarchy and the Cromwellian Republic, ending with the acts of British Union and the Restoration of the Monarchy.

The second edition of Steven Ellis's formidable work represents not only a survey, but also a critique of traditional perspectives on the making of modern Ireland. It explores Ireland both as a frontier society divided between English and Gaelic worlds, and also as a problem of government within the wider Tudor state. This edition includes two major new chapters: the first extending the coverage back a generation, to assess the impact on English Ireland of the crisis of lordship that accompanied the Lancastrian collapse in France and England; and the second greatly extending the material on the Gaelic response to Tudor expansion.

The histories of the "three kingdoms" or "four nations" that eventually became the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland in 1801 are distinct but not separate. From the Restoration of Charles II to the Act of Union with Ireland, Jim Smyth interweaves the different national stories into an authoritative account of the creation of the modern British state. Including discussion of society and economy alongside analysis of contemporary politics and the religious question, Smyth shows how the experiences of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland were shaped by unity as well as diversity. In an age of anxiety about national identity and the future of the United Kingdom, this is a timely and important book.

This is the first book to offer both a full understanding of the importance of "British" history, while also providing the tools that allow a critical assessment of its achievements. The New British History introduces the new perspectives opened up by the adoption of a truly British approach to historiography--one that encompasses on equal terms the interacting histories of Wales, Ireland, Scotland and England--from the time of Thomas Cromwell in the 1530s to the Act of Union in 1707. The core of the book consists of a series of chronological essays, supplemented by a detailed historiographical and conceptual introduction. The essays consider whether the "British" approach can be extended to social and economic history, examine concepts of British and national identity, and debate whether the new approach has brought with it loss as well as gain.

This book charts the extension of Tudor government into the independent Gaelic lordships of the O'Byrnes and O'Tooles (Wicklow, Kildare, Dublin) from the origins of this process of expansion in the late 15th century until the abortive attempt under the Elizabethan regime to transform both lordships into an English county. Here we see an autonomous Gaelic district initially embrace its entrance into the fold of a nascent Tudor administrative unit before ultimately rejecting, through armed rebellion, what had become intrusive English military rule and cultural domination.

Tudor Frontiers and Noble Power

Tudor Frontiers and Noble Power Author Steven G. Ellis
ISBN-10 UOM:39015034278237
Release 1995
Pages 303
Download Link Click Here

Tudor Frontiers and Noble Power takes a new and controversial look at Tudor government and the formation of the British state, from the perspective of the borderlands which collectively made up over half of English territory. Steven Ellis argues that it was the frontiers, not lowland England, which provided the real test of Tudor statesmanship. After 1534 the borderlands were drawn more closely into the Tudor state but by a policy which was seriously flawed and could not be applied to Scotland after 1603.

Descended from one of the first Anglo-Norman invaders in the late 1160s, the Fitzgerald earls of Desmond came to dominate the political, economic, and social life of Munster for much of the succeeding four centuries. In 1463, at the height of their power, Thomas, eighth earl, was appointed lord deputy, the fourth of his line to hold that post. However, five years later, Thomas was executed in controversial circumstances. As a consequence, the Desmonds, traditionally highly autonomous, became alienated from the English monarchy for over seventy years, during which time they supported a Yorkist pretender to the throne of England and signed treaties with the kings of Spain and France. In addition, they also went through a period of internecine feuding between 1510 and 1540. The accession of James, fourteenth earl, in 1541 brought this instability to an end, but his son Gerald was killed in rebellion against Queen Elizabeth. His death led to the termination of the earldom and paved the way for the Munster Plantation.

From its beginnings in a troubled corner of the Mediterranean, Christianity spread to Britain with astonishing speed, reaching some parts even before the Romans imposed their rule. A little more than a century later, it appears that there were British bishops (and conferences abroad for them to attend), a shrine to a local martyr, and public disputes about doctrine. Not Angels But Anglicans tells the story of 2000 years of Christianity in the British Isles. The tale is inspiring and shameful by turns, as the Christian faith has been embraced. appropriated or ignored by saints and sinners, archbishops and monarchs, clerics and the people of Britain. Here is a rich story of political intrigue, artistic genius, martyrdom, overseas endeavour, reform and counter-reform, complacency and generosity, written with the affection and exasperation that the Anglican Church generally evokes. These and many more contributors trace the progress or stalling of the faith across the centuries up to the present day. Attractively illustrated throughout, Not Angels But Anglicans is a timely reminder to today's Church that many of its current concerns are deeply embedded in its history.

Public and political life can no longer be seen as simply the pursuit of material gain or even as the struggle for enough food and shelter by which to live. The interests which people pursue are shaped by the identities which they both inherit and cultivate. In generating identities,everything is important, from clothing to cuisine, from architecture to language, and to understand why and how people associate in groups and communities, and why they compete and conflict with each other, every aspect of identity has to be taken seriously. Whatever secrets may remain in people'sminds or souls, who they are socially is what they say, what they eat, and how they live.This book is ideal reading for students, lecturers, and the general reader interested in the importance of identity in public life, and in the inherent political momentum in identity cultivation to both equality and inequality simultaneously
