9780750960892: Henry VIII: The Life and Rule of England's Nero
Review:

"Excellent throughout, an acid-etched and bracingly caustic examination of Henry's reign that for once doesn't waste readers time with endless petticoat-obsessions about the infamous six wives. Matusiak has bigger fish to fry than mere serial wiving." --"Open Letters"

From the Publisher:

This compelling new account of Henry VIII is by no means yet another history of the 'old monster' and his reign. The 'monster' displayed here is, at the very least, a newer type, more beset by anxieties and insecurities, and more tightly surrounded by those who equated loyalty with fear, self-interest and blind obedience. This ground-breaking book also demonstrates that Henry VIII's priorities were always primarily martial rather than marital, and accepts neither the necessity of his all-consuming quest for a male heir nor his need ultimately to sever ties with Rome. As the story unfolds, Henry's predicaments prove largely of his own making, the paths he chooses neither the only nor the best available. For Henry VIII was not only a bad man, but also a bad ruler who failed to achieve his aims and blighted the reigns of his two immediate successors. Five hundred years after he ascended the throne, the reputation of England's best known king is being rehabilitated and subtly sanitized. Yet Tudor historian John Matusiak paints a colourful and absorbingly intimate portrait of a man wholly unfit for power.

Descripción History Press. 1 Paperback(s), 2014. soft. Estado de conservación: New. Five centuries after he ascended the throne, the reputation of Henry VIII is generally being rehabilitated and subtly sanitized. Tudor historian John Matusiak paints a considerably less flattering portrait of the "old monster" and his reign, revealing him to be more beset by anxieties and insecurities than most sources will admit, and more tightly surrounded by those who equated loyalty with fear, self-interest, and blind obedience. Matusiak accepts neither the necessity of Henry's supposed quest for a male heir nor his need ultimately to sever ties with Rome; he was far more concerned with martial affairs than marital ones. Henry's predicaments were largely of his own making, insists Matusiak; he was not only a bad man, but also a bad ruler, who failed to achieve his aims and blighted the reigns of his two immediate successors. "Excellent throughout, an acid-etched and bracingly caustic examination of Henry's reign that for once doesn't waste readers' time with endless petticoat-obsessions about the infamous six wives. Matusiak has bigger fish to fry than mere serial wiving; his central contention is that Henry would still have been a deplorable ruler even if he'd been as chaste as the Virgin Mary. He indicts Henry on professional grounds, as a bad king."—Steve Donoghue 319. Nº de ref. de la librería 62355
