There is also Eamon Duffy‘s Ten Popes Who Shook the World, which looks at ten profoundly influential popes, from St. Peter to John Paul II, and explores their amazing lives and accomplishments. The Zong presents first full review of the mass murder by crew members on the slave ship Zong and the lasting repercussions of this horrifying event, whilst in the Yale English Monarchs Series, Mary I presents a new appraisal of the first Tudor queen, her European connections, her ambitions and intentions, and the religious violence that stained her short reign.
