Thus the momentous events of the 1530s are generally (but not universally) attributed to Cromwell's agency. Cromwell has been the subject of close and continuous attention for the last half century, with positive appraisal of his work and achievements as the scholarly norm. In this classroom biography―the first in a generation and the only one now in print―that judgment is largely accepted, though it is combined with earlier and more critical assessments that view Cromwell as a disciple of Machiavelli. One distinguishing feature of this study is its overview of Machiavellian thought, along with its overview of Marsilian thought. Marsilius of Padua, fourteenth-century political philosopher and author of Defensor Pacis, is widely recognized as the source of Cromwell's reformation ideas; but nowhere is Marsilius explicated. The same is true of Machiavelli―never explicated though said to be (by Reginald Pole, cousin of Henry and cardinal of the church) the source of Cromwell's ideas on statecraft. A second distinguishing feature of the book is its inclusion of an introductory chapter that situates Cromwell in the sixteenth century and shows his connection to important events, characters, and ideas.

This book is not so much about Thomas Cromwell as it is a mise en scène for the events of 1533-40 and the origins of the Puritan Revolution of 1628-50. Colby clearly and concisely presents the historical record vis-à-vie Cromwell and clearly identifies where contemporary scholarship agrees and where opinions differ about the roles of the various actors.

Along the way, Coby seems to suggest that Thomas Cromwell's practice of having Commons ratify Henry VIII's decrees directed against the Catholic Church, thought to be superfluous at the time, might well have laid the necessary ground work for the fundamental supremacy of the modern British House of Commons and the US House of Representatives.

If you are interested in this period that marked the beginnings of modern England, GB, UK and the US this is an excellent place to begin. Fans of "The Tudors" may also find this book interesting.

My main problem with this book is Coby sets up to prove that Cromwell followed Machiavelli's teaching in The Prince and to do so reads all his actions trough Machiavelli's prism. But this methodology is risky: one often ends up forcing facts into the model, regardless of other possible (if not more plausible) explanations.

I read this book back-to-back with Schofield's biography and I found Coby's account of Cromwell's life and his death not only biased but unsubtle. Nothing new is added from what we know trough popular culture, which is a pity, and I was surprised by the author taking things out of context: most notably, the use of the word "Catholic" in the scaffold speech, taken to mean the Roman Church and not the use it was given in Lutheran circles in the 16th century.

Lastly, and something always important to me, the scarce bibliography was frustrating and something I always dislike in non-fiction books.
