Riassunto: Ranging from the reign of Henry IV to the end of the Middle Ages and the accession of the Tudors, this study presents a significant reappraisal of England's late medieval culture and the development of a new modern society.
From the Back Cover:
This new history of England in the fifteenth century will transform our understanding of the period. Drawing together political, economic, social and religious considerations, the clear chronological framework brings the age of Lancaster and York to life. It takes further the notion that, far from being overwhelmed by destructive civil strife, England's late medieval century was characterised by social stability, economic development and cultural vigour which lay the foundations for the emergence of early modern society. Placing the English experience within the vital context of the British Isles, the book ranges from the reign of Henry IV to the closing of the middle ages during the reign of Henry VIII, covering:
* The Lancastrian dynasty
* The later stages of the Hundred Years War
* The Wars of the Roses
* The early Tudors
The political narrative is interspersed with discussion of social, economic and religious life, analysis of institutional structures and the role of the church. Late Medieval England presents a significant and vital reappraisal of a critical era in English history.
