Plantagenet England

Product description

Plantagenet England: England 1225-1360.
Written by Michael Prestwich.

Published by Oxford University Press 2005.
Hardback. Black cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine. Paper dust jacket with some signs of shelf wear. Boards sound. Pages clean and crisp with some dirt marks visible on the outside edge of the book block.

England of the Plantagenet Kings was a turbulent place. In politics it saw Simon de Montford's challenge to the crown in Henry III's reign and it witnessed the deposition of Edward II. By contrast, and as a relief, it also experienced the highly successful roles of Edward I and his grandson, Edward III. Political institutions were transformed with the development of parliament. War, the stimulus for some of that change, was never far away. Wales was conquered and the Scottish Wars of Independence started in Edward I's reign, while Crecy and Poitiers were English triumphs under Edward III.
Beyond politics, the structure of English society was developing, from the great magnates at the top to the peasantry at the bottom. Economic changes were also significant, from the expansionary period of the thirteenth century to years of difficulty in the fourteenth, culminating in the greatest demographic disaster of historical times, the Black Death.
Embracing politics and government, kingship, the structure of society, France, Scotland and Wales, as well as areas such as the environment, the management of the land, crime, and punishment, Michael Prestwich's magnificent survey casts the Plantagenet past in a new and revealing light.
