9780521318747: The Wars of the Roses: Politics and the Constitution in England, c.1437-1509 (Cambridge Medieval Textbooks)

The Wars of the Roses was a period of major crisis in English politics and in the lives of the English landowning classes. This book attempts to explain why the Wars occurred, and with what results, by placing them in the context of the ruling classes' expectations of kingship and governance at that time. The book draws on a large amount of detailed work written over the past twenty-five years on local and national politics, to present a coherent synthesis of what can seem a baffling and incoherent period.

Review:

"Carpenter's text informs scholars and students of English medieval and Renaissance history. Its arguemtns are clear and well supported by the evidence, and it offers coherent explanations of the crisis of kingship in the fifteenth century. It is a welcome addition to an important series." Michael J. Galgano, History

"[Carpernter's] book will be read with great interest and considerable respect by students and scholars for whom the Wars of the Roses remain the single most important event in English medieval history." Cynthia J. Neville, Speculum

"This is a controversial work, perhaps in parts deliberately provocative. This is a book to make the blood of some fellow historians boil. As intended, one suspects, it will stimulate spirited reactions and hot debate. And all, no doubt, for the good." A.J. Pollard, Albion

Descrizione libro CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1997. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a new interpretation of English politics during the extended period beginning with the majority of Henry VI in c. 1437 up to the accession of Henry VII in 1509. The later fifteenth century in England is a somewhat baffling and apparently incoherent period which historians and history students have found consistently difficult to handle. The large-scale revisionism inspired by the classic work of K. B. McFarlane led to the first real work on politics, both national and local, but has left the period in a disjointed state: much material has been unearthed, but without any real sense of direction or coherence. This book places the events of the century within a clearly delineated framework of constitutional structures, practices and expectations, in an attempt to show the meaning of the apparently frenetic and purposeless political events which occurred within that framework - and which sometimes breached it. At the same time it takes cognisance of all the work that has been done on the period, including recent and innovative work on Henry VI. Codice libro della libreria AAU9780521318747
