Congratulations to my good friend Kyra Kramer, who many of you will know from her book Blood Will Tell: A medical explanation for the tyranny of Henry VIII, on the release of her latest book Henry VIII’s Health in a Nutshell. I will definitely be reading this!
Here’s the blurb…
MadeGlobal’s History in a Nutshell Series aims to give readers a good grounding in a historical topic in a concise, easily digestible and easily accessible way.
Tudor histories are rife with “facts” about Henry VIII’s life and health, but as a medical anthropologist, Kyra Kramer, author of Blood Will Tell, has learned one should never take those “facts” at face value. In Henry VIII’s Health in a Nutshell, Kramer highlights the various health issues that Henry suffered throughout his life and proposes a few new theories for their causes, based on modern medical findings.
Known for her readability and excellent grasp of the intricacies of modern medical diagnostics, Kyra Kramer gives the reader a new understanding of Henry VIII’s health difficulties, and provides new insights into their possible causes.
Kyra Cornelius Kramer is an author and researcher with undergraduate degrees in both biology and anthropology from the University of Kentucky, as well as a masters degree in medical anthropology from Southern Methodist University. Her work is published in several peer-reviewed journals, including The Historical Journal, Studies in Gothic Fiction, and Journal of Popular Romance Studies. Her books include Blood Will Tell: A medical explanation for the tyranny of Henry VIII, and The Jezebel Effect: Why the slut shaming of famous queens still matters.
