  • Queen of Scots by John Guy
    Queen of Scots (English, Paperback) John Guy

    National Book Critics Circle Award finalist "A triumph . . . a masterpiece full of fire and tragedy." ? Amanda Foreman, author of Georgiana In the first full-scale biography of Mary Stuart in more than thirty years, John Guy creates an intimate and absorbing portrait of one of history's greatest women, depicting her world and her place in the sweep of history with stunning immediacy. Bringing together all surviving documents and uncovering a trove of new sources for the first time, Guy dispels the popular image of Mary Queen of Scots as a romantic leading lady ? achieving her ends through feminine wiles ? and establishes her as the intellectual and political equal of Elizabeth I. Through Guy's pioneering research and superbly readable prose, we come to see Mary as a skillful diplomat, maneuvering ingeniously among a dizzying array of factions that sought to control or dethrone her. Queen of Scots is an enthralling, myth-shattering look at a complex woman and ruler and her time. "The definitive biography . . . gripping . . . a pure pleasure to read." ? Washington Post Book World "Reads like Shakespearean drama, with all the delicious plotting and fresh writing to go with it." ? Atlanta Journal-Constitution John Guy is a fellow in history at Clare College, University of Cambridge, and the author of several books, including the best-selling textbook Tudor England.
