"Written primarily for students and other nonspecialists who have interest -- but little background -- in this period of history," the dictionary contains 497 entries of people, events, ideas, arid terms significant to the Elizabethan period of British history. All are cross-referenced to related entries and include recommendations for additional reading. Also included are a guide to selected topics, a chronology of events from 1485 to 1603, maps, bibliography, and index. Appendices supply genealogies, lists of Elizabethan Archbishops of Canterbury and York, Roman Catholic Popes, and sixteenth-century European monarchs, plus selected bibliographies of historical fiction and motion pictures with Tudor and Elizabethan characters and settings, and sound recordings of Tudor and Elizabethan music.
