Elizabeth I and Her Circle

Elizabeth I and Her Circle - Susan Doran Review of an ARC Copy

I had already read The Tudor Chronicles by the same author and am a fan of the Tudor period so already had a good chronological knowledge of the period and the main actors. I found the approach Susan Doran chose for "Elizabeth I and her circle" extremely interesting, especially the structure of the book, which goes through Elizabeth's relatioships with the composants of the circle, being individuals or interest groups. This book is, imho, a must read for those who already know the basics on the Tudor and the chronological events in Elizabeth's life but are interested in understanding her profound motives.
