It was a world in transition, soon to be replaced by the Renaissance and the Age of Exploration -- and John... more...

The crown therefore passed to Edward's undoubtedly legitimate younger brother, Richard, Duke of Gloucester. But Richard, too, found himself entangled in the web of uncertainly, since those... more...

The fifty-year reign of one of England's most charismatic leaders is assessed in this lucid and incisive work. W.M.
