Author Notes

English historian Geoffrey Elton was born in Germany but educated at the University of London. In 1967 he became professor of constitutional history at Cambridge University. A scholar of Tudor administrative history, his studies have emphasized the development of modern governmental machinery, under the direction of Thomas Cromwell, as the central feature of the Tudor era. He has written many excellent works, a recent one being The English (1992).
