The Shaping of the Elizabethan Regime Summary

The Shaping of the Elizabethan Regime: Elizabethan Politics, 1558-1572 by Wallace T. MacCaffrey

Upon acceding to the throne in 1558, Elizabeth I was faced with a host of problems: military defeat on the Continent; a bankrupt treasury; lack of direction in foreign and domestic policies; the threat of religious civil war; and challenges to the legitimacy of her succession. Covering the first 15 years of Elizabeth's rule, this volume illuminates the new pattern of power relationships on which the regime securely established itself.

The Shaping of the Elizabethan Regime Reviews

MacCaffrey has written an extraordinarily interesting book.... The result is a canvas that is apt to remain the standard picture of early Elizabethan political history for some time to come.---Maurice Lee, Jr., American Historical Review
Professor MacCaffrey has performed a major service.... We are even a little closer to an understanding of the Queen herself, as we are guided through the labyrinth of her dealings with her own servants and foreign ambassadors.---D. M. Loades, Renaissance Quarterly
It is the analysis of how war policy was made which illustrates most effectively the skill of MacCaffrey's narrative and the depth of his understanding of Elizabeth.... A superb book, full of wisdom, learning, and insight.---Kenneth R. Bartlett, Canadian Journal of History
