Henry VIII's forceful personality dominated his age and continues to fascinate our own. In few other reigns have there been developments of such magnitude—in politics, foreign relations, religion, and society—that have so radically affected succeeding generations. Above all the English Reformation and the break with Rome are still felt more than four centuries on. First published in 1968, J. J. Scarisbrick's Henry VIII remains the standard account, a thorough exploration of the documentary sources, stylishly written and highly readable. In an updated foreword, Professor Scarisbrick takes stock of subsequent research and places his classic account within the context of recent publications. "It is the magisterial quality of J.J. Scarisbrick's work that has enabled it to hold the field for so long."—Steve Gunn, Times Literary Supplement
Henry I, son of William the Conqueror, ruled from 1100 to 1135, a time of fundamental change in the Anglo-Norman world. This long-awaited biography, written by one of the most distinguished medievalists of his generation, offers a major reassessment of Henry’s character and reign. Challenging the dark and dated portrait of the king as brutal, greedy, and repressive, it argues instead that Henry’s rule was based on reason and order. C. Warren Hollister points out that Henry laid the foundations for judicial and financial institutions usually attributed to his grandson, Henry II. Royal government was centralized and systematized, leading to firm, stable, and peaceful rule for his subjects in both England and Normandy. By mid-reign Henry I was the most powerful king in Western Europe, and with astute diplomacy, an intelligence network, and strategic marriages of his children (legitimate and illegitimate), he was able to undermine the various coalitions mounted against him. Henry strove throughout his reign to solidify the Anglo-Norman dynasty, and his marriage linked the Normans to the Old English line. Hollister vividly describes Henry’s life and reign, places them against the political background of the time, and provides analytical studies of the king and his magnates, the royal administration, and relations between king and church. The resulting volume is one that will be welcomed by students and general readers alike.

Weiße Rose, rote Rose – ein Kampf zwischen Liebe und Vernunft Henry Tudor hat sich nach der siegreichen Schlacht von Bosworth 1485 zum König krönen lassen. Doch der neugewonnene Frieden ist fragil: Um die verfeindeten Häuser York und Lancaster miteinander zu vereinen, heiratet er Elizabeth von York. Die Loyalität der Königin wird auf eine harte Probe gestellt, als ein junger Mann auftaucht und Anspruch auf den Thron erhebt. Elizabeth muss sich entscheiden, wem ihre Treue gilt: ihrem Gemahl, den sie langsam zu lieben lernt, oder dem Mann, der behauptet, ihr Bruder zu sein. «Philippa Gregory schreibt wirklich verdammt gut.» (Brigitte)
