Summary
This classic study of Elizabethan society, first published by Macmillan in 1955, is now available in a new edition. In this masterpiece, Rowse follows the first steps of Elizabethan England - with its legendary adventurers and merchants - to Imperial Greatness. He skilfully examines the expansion of society both by state and individual enterprise, starting at home then travelling across the seas to Ireland, the riches of the East and the New World of the Americas. For this reissue on the 400th anniversary of Elizabeth's death, bestselling historian Alison Weir has written a new foreword, setting Rowse's work in context for a new 21st-century readership
