Kurzbeschreibung

25. April 1991 Who's Who in British History
Part of an eight-volume series providing short biographies of men and women from Roman to Victorian times, Who's Who in Late Medieval England spans the period 1272-1485. Covering the reigns of Edward I to Richard III, it was a turbulent period: the conquest of Wales, the Hundred Years War and the Wars of the Roses, but it was also a time of piety, learning and economic development, marked by the endowment of monasteries and of colleges, many of which have survived to the present day as evidence of the remarkable achievements of this period. Men and women from all walks of life feature among the 200 biographies in the volume. Each entry places the subject in the context of their age and evokes what was distinctive and interesting about their personality and achievement. The biographies are arranged in a broadly chronological rather than alphabetical sequence so that the reader may easily browse from one contemporary to the next. The index, with its many cross-references, reveals further linkages between contemporaries. Each volume is a portrait of an age, presenting history in a biographical form which complements the conventional approach.

Format:Taschenbuch
A wonderful quick references covering political figures in England turbulent Middle Ages from 1272-1485. Think of the changes going on in this period! Longshanks tried to forge Scotland, Wales and Ireland into a jewel of the English crown. The violent murder of Edward the Second, the death of the Black Prince, the Hundred Years War and the War of the Roses. A lot of men and women who were movers and shakers and played pivotal roles in Britain's history to keep straight.
For lovers of history, who need a "road map" from time to time, to fictional writers need to quick refresh on the many faces of the period, this is wonderful resource. Over 200 different biographies, daring on modern scholars works, it conveys more than the bare bone facts. Hicks gives a richer detailed understanding of the figure and places them in the proper political context.
It's easy to use, arranged in chronological order rather than the general A-Z that places the person in the proper grouping to understand their interaction with other people of the period, the book is readable as a BOOK from cover to cover, or perfect for the quick need reference.
The 3rd volume in the Who's Who in British History series - all are highly recommended for both the armchair historian and the fictional writers of the period.
