Available in both hardback and paperback, this book is a collection of essays by nine British and American historians. It focuses attention on the critical early years of English Protestantism, trying to grapple with what Ryrie thinks is the 'intractable question' of how a Roman Catholic nation in the 1520s became a more or less Protestant nation by the 1580s.
