Explores the relationship between England and Ireland in the Tudor period using William Cecil as a vehicle for historical enquiry. Argues that Cecil shaped the course and character of Tudor rule in Ireland in Elizabeth's reign more than any other figure, and offers a major reappraisal of this crucial period in the histories of England and Ireland.
