Descrizione:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In this tasty little morsel of a book, Alexander presents the authentic must-know info of the Tudor age and its players in an entertaining fashion, with a light touch and a healthy dose of colloquial asides. Like any good teacher, she leaves judgement of events and individuals open-ended, encouraging the reader to draw their own conclusions on commonly debated 16th century topics. "A wonderfully irreverent and engaging introduction to the Tudors. Barb Alexander manages to be both jaunty and authoritative, a winning combination that will attract and beguile many a reader. Wearing her learning lightly, Alexander adds an ever-entertaining fresh new voice to the history world, which deserves to be heard." - Suzannah Lipscomb, author of 1536: The Year that Changed Henry VIII "An entertaining yet highly accurate guide to this larger-than-life royal dynasty. Alexander is spot-on with her descriptions of these monarchs and their reigns, and injects humor to keep readers of all ages entertained." - Claire Ridgway, author of The Fall of Anne Boleyn "The Tudor Tutor brings the 16th century to roaring life for even the most jaded 21st century observer. Putting the events and people of 500 years ago into a clear, modern context, this is as witty and punchy an introduction to the period as you could hope for." - Justin Pollard, historical consultant for Showtime's "The Tudors".

L'autore: Barb Alexander holds a master's degree in education, and started The Tudor Tutor blog back in 2009 as a way of merging history education and humor. As a former resident of England, she stood where Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard were executed, Elizabeth I and Mary I are buried, Edward VI was baptised, Henry VIII feasted, and scores of English monarchs were crowned. She would have asked to try out the Coronation Chair but Westminster Abbey probably frowns upon that sort of thing. Her lifelong interest in England and its history, as well as her inclination to educate, come together in her first book, The Tudor Tutor: Your Cheeky Guide to the Dynasty.
