Overview

This important exploration of the reign of Edward I - one of England's most lionised, feared and successful monarchs - presents his kingship in a radical new light. Through detailed case studies of Shropshire, Warwickshire and Kent, Caroline Burt examines how Edward's governance at a national level was reflected in different localities. She employs novel methodology to measure levels of disorder and the effects of government action, and uncovers a remarkably sophisticated approach to governance. This study combines an empirical examination of government with an understanding of developing political ideas and ideological motivation and contributes towards a greater understanding of the development of local government and politics in England in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Edward emerges as a king with a coherent set of ideas about the governance of his realm, both intellectually and practically, whose achievements were even more remarkable than has previously been recognised.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Recommended."
Choice

"Burt provides a compelling and persuasive alternate view of Edward I as a ruler who was motivated by principle, and who was convinced of his duty to care for the common good … In addition to its considerable value for specialists, this book also will be accessible to students. Burt's clear and precise prose, as well as her efforts to clarify technical matters of law and governmental organization, make this text highly suitable for graduate courses as well as for upper division undergraduate courses in the history of medieval England, medieval law, and medieval government."
David Bachrach, The Medieval Review

"An examination of how Edward's governance at national level was reflected in different localities. The approach is mainly chronological, with general discussion of ideas of kingship and governance, and the text is largely based on evidence from Shropshire, Warwickshire and Kent."
