Essays exploring how England was governed during a tumultuous period.

The twin themes of power and authority in fourteenth-century England, a century of transition between the high and late medieval polities, run throughout this volume, reflecting Professor Given-Wilson's seminal work in the area. Covering the period between Edward I's final years and the tyranny of Richard II, the volume encompasses political, social, economic and administrative history through four major lens: central governance, aristocratic politics, warfare, and English power abroad. Topics covered include royal administrative efficiency; the machinations of government clerks; the relationship between the crown and market forces; the changing nature of noble titles and lordship;and ideas of court politics, favouritism and loyalty. Military policy is also examined, looking at army composition and definitions of "war" and "rebellion". The book concludes with a detailed study of treasonous English captainsaround Calais and a broader examination of Plantagenet ambitions on the European stage.

ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW

«Ruling Fourteenth-Century England, written in honor of Professor Christopher Given-Wilson, focuses on two themes, power and authority, that broadly define his interest in the fourteenth century. A variety of thought-provoking chapters covers one or more of four sub-themes: central governance, aristocratic politics, warfare, and English power abroad.»
