A Second Domesday? : The Hundred Rolls of 1279-80
(Sandra Raban)
This is the first comprehensive study of the 1279-80 hundred rolls, one of the most important sources for later thirteenth century England. Raban puts the rolls in their historical context, looks at the way in which the inquiry was conducted and questions whether or not it was conceived as a second Domesday. Based on the latest knowledge of the returns, this will be an indispensable working tool for historians.

England and Its Rulers, 1066-1272: With an Epilogue on Edward I (1272-1307)
(M. T. Clanchy)
England and its Rulers has established itself as an attractive and authoritative account of English history from 1066. It brings the chronicle sources to life and makes original assessments of the kings and political events. Examining a period in which England was dominated by successive waves of foreign rulers, the book emphasizes how the Norman Conquest was followed by the Angevin Empire and then by the Poitevin ministers and favorites brought in by King John and Henry III. The identity of English culture is analyzed in the light of these strong external influences.This new edition retains the characteristics of the widely-acclaimed original, but it now includes an epilog on Edward I (1272-1307), which considers his wars in Wales and Scotland and reassesses his character and achievements. The second edition also contains a new bibliography covering all aspects of English history in the period 1066-1307.

England Under Edward I and II: 1259-1327
(Sandra Raban)
This book covers the reigns of Edward I and Edward II, a time of turbulence among the leaders of society, important developments in the law and constitution alongside extreme suffering among the peasantry. The author examines the key events and institutions of the period, explaining how we know about them and reviewing important debates among historians. Building outwards from the land and its inhabitants, to government, politics, and the formative role of the church, Sandra Raban makes comparisons with the wider world, as well as exploring broader aspects of culture. Highlighting the extraordinary contrasts which were a feature of Britain during this period, the book makes use of a wealth of artistic material to capture the atmosphere of late-thirteenth- and early-fourteenth-century England in all its colour and diversity.

England under Edward I: Castles, conquests, and community
(Jennifer Hawthorne)


English Society and the Crusade, 1216-1307
(Simon Lloyd)
The crusades played a significant part in the history of later medieval Europe, yet the nature of the relationship between the crusading movement and the societies that sponsored it remains fragmented. This ambitious study provides unparalleled insight into the impact of the movement on one such society, late 13th-century England, analyzing the effect of the crusading call upon people of the time, and assessing the factors and influences that conditioned their response. Drawing on a wide range of sources, Lloyd surveys the ways in which the crusade was promoted, preached, organized, and financed, and considers these processes in their social and political context.

The Three Edwards
(Thomas B. Costain)
THE THREE EDWARDS, third in Thomas B. Costain's survey of Britain under the Plantagenets, covers the years between 1272 and 1377 when three Edwards ruled England.

The Three Edwards: War and State in England
(M. Prestwich)
An excellent introduction to an eventful period of history., this spirited work analyzes the three Kings of very different qualities and reputations: the confident and masterful Edward I who conquered Wales; Edward II who was defeated by the Scots in battle and was humiliated and deposed; and Edward III whose reign saw great triumphs against the French, but also the ravages of plague. Michael Prestwich combines lively anecdotes and colorful assessments of each of these Kings' characters. The second edition of this highly acclaimed book updates the story throughout. A great deal of research on this period of history has been undertaken since 1980 when the first edition was published, a great deal of it by the author himself. This new edition presents new and improved maps to help visualize the campaigns and adds a revised guide to further reading.
