Description

Available in paperback for the first time, this volume covers the long reigns of Henry III and Edward I, who ruled England from 1216-1307. The narrative of domestic and foreign affairs includes detailed analyses of the revolt of Simon de Montfort, relations with Scotland, Ireland and Wales, and English involvement in France and the Crusades. Common themes, such as the power of the Church and the development of administrative and legal institutions, are considered in separate chapters. Placing events in their European context, the book charts the history of an increasingly important medieval kingdom during a period of considerable significance.show more
