    Taking its title from Shakespeare's 'This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England', Collinson's book comprises a series of eleven essays exploring the growing conviction of 'Englishness' in the 16th century, and looking in particular at the influence of William Tyndale in language and religion; the 'self-discovery of England' in the historical work of William Camden; John Stow's Survey of London; and John Foxe and national consciousness.
