Description

England and its Rulers has established itself as the most attractive and authoritative account of English history from 1066. It brings the chronicle sources to life and makes original assessments of the kings and political events. Examining a period in which England was dominated by successive waves of foreign rulers, the book emphasizes how the Norman Conquest was followed by the Angevin Empire and then by the Poitevin ministers and favorites brought in by King John and Henry III. The book also includes coverage of the reign of Edward I (1272-1307), which considers his wars in Wales and Scotland and reassesses his character and achievements. The identity of British culture is analyzed in the light of these strong external influences.The last edition of this widely-acclaimed book functioned primarily as a political history of England in the later middle ages. For this third edition Clanchy has added three new chapters which examine the social and economic history of the period. These are concerned with the creation of wealth, the rise of the aristocracy and with chronicling a British as opposed to an exclusively English history. Additions and amendments have been made to the existing chapters and the bibliography and suggested further reading has been fully updated.
