The classic study of Elizabethan England, first published by Macmillan in 1950, is being reissued for the 400th anniversary of Elizabeth I's death with a substantial new introduction by the distinguished historian Christopher Haigh.

Written by the eminent scholar, A.L. Rowse, The England of Elizabeth paints a lively portrait of Elizabethan society, the classes forming it, its government and administration, law and religious organization, education and social order and traces the lasting legacy it has left on our lives today. In the new introduction, Christopher Haigh reassesses the importance of Rowse's work for our understanding of the Elizabethan period.
