    This is one of the shortest of the various books I have read about Elizabeth I, and also one of the best. Haigh eschews the usual chronology of her life and reign and instead concentrates on her relations with the various centres of power: the church, the nobility, the Council, her own court, parliament, the military, and the people, dealing with each separately over the 44 years from late 1558 to early 1603.

    I read this book as part of my University of Oxford 10 week course on the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth I of England and Ireland.Haigh puts across a short punchy version of Elizabeth's reign, he comes to the point rapidly which is ideal for students in grasping ideas, formulating events and reaching conclusions in a short space of time. A very good book for study. On the negative side, Haigh can be quite scathing of Elizabeth and his conclusion is a little depressing!
