"Hoak and his colleagues are to be congratulated for their rich contributions to the political historiography of Tudor England." Sixteenth Century Journal "The standard of contributions is high, and the authors score again and again by their reinterpretation of familiar material and their close readings of texts and images...The volume is likely to have the greatest impct at an intermediate level, among students at universities. It would be interesting to put the volume into the hands of a good student and ask him or her to reconstitute the rules of political culture from these twelve essays alone to describe both the system and direction of change." E. Timothy Smith, American Historical Review "Tudor Political Culture is a handsomely illustrated collection of twelve original interdisciplinary essays that illuminate the unwritten codes and mentalities of Tudor England...in presenting new material to widen and change our perception of how power was revealed during that time...They enlarge our understanding of Tudor political culture and thus lead to a better understanding of the age." Robert C. Barddock, Renaissance Quarterly "The work performed by the editor and contributors to Tudor Political Culture is on the right track." Joseph S. Block, Albion "This book is an important collection of 12 interdisciplinary essays, which freshly assess Tudor mentality and, in particular, Tudor political culture." Wolfgang, Riehle, International Journal of the Classical Tradition
