I’ve been asked several times by people reading this site to recommend books to read about various subjects connected with something I’ve written about. I’m therefore creating a series of pages about particular times and places, with details about books on this period.
These are not supposed to be comprehensive summaries of everything written about a particular period of history – rather, they are selections from books I have read and enjoyed myself, so I know what I’m suggesting is something I’ve found of interest.
This page consists of a contents page for the various types of history and periods of time. Click on a page for the recommendations for that time.
Elizabethan History – General, Political and Religious
Elizabethan History – Elizabeth I and her siblings, cousins, and other relations
Elizabethan History – Exploration and Foreign Policy, and Social History
