This first biography of Richard, third duke of York, is a case study of the political opposition of a great lord to the regime of Henry VI. Focusing on the increasing isolation of a once loyal subject, the book includes the first evaluation of Richard's two effective periods as Protector of England, and presents fresh evidence on the events surrounding the Wars of the Roses and Richard's unsuccessful claim to the throne in 1460.
