The Expansion of Elizabethan England

Cover
Univ of Wisconsin Press, 2003 - 449 Seiten

The adventurers and merchants (as well as the poets and playwrights) of the Elizabethan age are legendary. This work by the eminent historian A. L. Rowse argues that, under Elizabeth I, England began its expansion and eventual enormous impact upon the world. In this era, England amplifed its ideas and influence on international affairs and it also expanded physically into Cornwall and Ireland, made first contact with Russia and the Canadian North, and opened trade with India and the Far East. This new edition includes an introduction by Michael Portillo.
