Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Pollard (history, U. of Teesside, England) provides what he calls a "largely traditional, if not even old-fashioned, king-centred history of England." Yet he tries to avoid the "who loses, who wins; who's in, who's out" mode of accounting, aiming instead to provide a good sense of 15th century England's place within Britain, as well as its institutions, social structure, and people.
