  1. Let me put in a plug for the newest entry in the “Queenship and Power” series: History, Fiction andThe Tudors, with noted scholars like Retha Warnicke, Glenn Richardson, Maria Hayward, Carol Levin and Thomas Betteridge, among others, submitting Showtime’s infamous series to solemn scholarly analysis. Pricey though.

  2. I don’t know how I managed to miss that one – thanks! That sounds like an interesting one… I’ll have to see if my university library gets a copy (since there is no way I’m paying that much!).
