With a sharp focus on high politics, this is a cohesive and exemplary collection of rewarding scholarship. HISTORYThe studies in this book add colour and depth to the reign of one of the most important and fascinating of late medieval kings. New research addresses received ideas about Edward III's kingship, including the way he came to power and how he kept it; his use of nobility and sergeants-at-arms (his political and military elite); his preoccupation with justice; military campaigns in the Hundred Years War; and the propaganda and packaging of his rule, both in terms of his English throne and his claims to France. The collection is drawn together in a critical introduction written by Chris Given-Wilson and Michael Prestwich. Contributors include CAROLINE SHENTON, JAMES BOTHWELL, DAVID GREEN, ANTHONY MUSSON, RICHARD PARTINGTON, ANDREW AYTON, W.M. ORMROD, CRAIG TAYLOR, A.K. McHARDY, CLIFFORD J. ROGERS and MICHAEL BENNETT.

The eleven essays approach the reign from directions new and old (but) reinforce the current picture of a style of kingship that was vigorous, often inventive, invariably shrewd, and remarkably sensitive to the need to win public support for demanding and expensive policies... A notable addition to the literature. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW With a sharp focus on high politics, this is a cohesive and exemplary collection of rewarding scholarship.
