A highly accessible and unashamedly 'King-centred' history of the 15th century which, as Pollard clearly shows, was not only a period of change and disunity, but also witnessed a great increase in the English sense of identity and self-worth. Beginning with the deposition of Richard II in 1399, Pollard investigates the political, religious and social factors that transformed England from a medieval to a modern society during the reigns of Lancastrian, Yorkist and Tudor monarchs. Chapters also consider the place of the 15th century within the broader history of England, different interpretations of the period and the social changes that affected all sectors of the population.

Editorial Reviews

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.
