Taking as its starting point two uprisings in England and Germany (Richard Marshal in 1233-4 and Henry (VII) in 1234-5), this book offers a new take on the political culture of high medieval Europe. Themes include: the role of violence; the norms of political behaviour; the public nature of politics; and the social history of political exchange.

Editorial Reviews

"Weiler has...written a highly original and very readable book, one which is as important for the questions it asks as for the precise answers given to them. For that reason alone it has a significance beyond the period in which it is set. In terms of engaging with Weiler's ideas and the detailed evidence on which they are based, some readers will doubtless find themselves handicapped by being unable to match his command of the German background and its sources; in itself a reason why the book is so valuable." -- D.A. Carpenter, English Historical Review
