Item description for The Reign of Edward II: New Perspectives by Gwilym Dodd...

Edward II presided over a turbulent and politically charged period ofEnglish history, but to date he has been relatively neglected in comparison to other fourteenth and fifteenth-century kings. This book offers a significant re-appraisal of a much maligned monarch and his historical importance, making use of the latest empirical research and revisionist theories, and concentrating on people and personalities, perceptions and expectations, rather than dry constitutional analysis. Papers consider both the institutional and the personal facets of Edward II's life and rule: his sexual reputation, the royal court, the role of the king's household knights, the nature of law and parliament in the reign, and England's relations with Ireland and Europe. Contributors: J. S. HAMILTON, W. M. ORMROD, IAN MORTIMER, MICHAEL PRESTWICH, ALISTAIR TEBBIT, W. R. CHILDS, PAUL DRYBURGH, ANTHONY MUSSON, GWILYM DODD, ALISON MARSHALL, MARTYN LAWRENCE, SEYMOUR PHILLIPS.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Reign of Edward II: New Perspectives?

Pricey but well worth it for those interested in Edward II  Aug 27, 2006
This is a fascinating collection of papers on the reign of Edward II. I especially liked the sections by Hamilton about Edward II's letters as prince, by Prestwich about Edward II's household, by Lawrence about Hugh le Despenser the elder, and by Phillips about "The Place of the Reign of Edward II." Well worth a read for those doing research in this period and for those strongly interested in Edward II.
