This study reassesses the policies of the founder of the Tudor dynasty and shows how Henry worked within existing traditions rather than breaking with the past. Every facet of the reign is considered including the nature of government - both at central and local level, financial policy, relations with the Church, foreign policy, economic affairs and concludes by assessing Henry as a 'new monarch'.

'Henry VII is an elegant volume...Its great merit lies in its clear and concise survey of the debates over Henry VII's methods of government, to which the results of recent work on the legal, financial and conciliar systems have been added.'
