"This book brings into focus, for the first time, the careers of Thomas Heneage, Anthony Denny, John Gates, and William Herbert, four Tudor courtiers who contended with the multiple perils and lures of court life, not always with success, as Gates's odyssey demonstrates. This study also revises some traditional interpretations in respect of these men's religious persuasion, qualifications, and personal character in general. Sil offers fresh perspectives on the political behaviors of these men who have hitherto been dismissed lightly by historians interested in weightier men and events of Tudor England. In particular, Sil's reassessment of Sir William Herbert's achievements exemplifies the usefulness of micro-studies of lesser known bureaucrats and statesmen for a critical understanding of the operation of Tudor government and administration."--BOOK JACKET.
