Edward I

Available

Description

Edward I-one of the outstanding monarchs of the English Middle Ages-pioneered legal and parliamentary change in England, conquered Wales, and came close to conquering Scotland. A major player in European diplomacy and war, he acted as peacemaker during the 1280s but became involved in a bitter war with Philip IV a decade later. This book is the definitive account of a remarkable king and his long and significant reign. Widely praised when it was first published in 1988, it is now reissued with a new introduction and updated bibliographic guide.

Praise for the earlier edition:

"A masterly achievement. . . . A work of enduring value and one certain to remain the standard life for many years."- Times Literary Supplement

"A fine book: learned, judicious, carefully thought out and skillfully presented. It is as near comprehensive as any single volume could be."- History Today

"To have died more revered than any other English monarch was an outstanding achievement; and it is worthily commemorated by this outstanding addition to the . . . corpus of royal biographies."- Times Education Supplement
