Edward I, Paperback

Edward I Paperback

Part of the The Yale English Monarchs Series series



Edward I--one of the outstanding monarchs of the English Middle Ages--pioneered legal and parliamentary change in England, conquered Wales, and came close to conquering Scotland.

A major player in European diplomacy and war, he acted as peacemaker during the 1280s but became involved in a bitter war with Philip IV a decade later.

This book is the definitive account of a remarkable king and his long and significant reign.

Widely praised when it was first published in 1988, it is now reissued with a new introduction and updated bibliographic guide. Praise for the earlier edition: "A masterly achievement...A work of enduring value and one certain to remain the standard life for many years."--Times Literary Supplement "A fine book: learned, judicious, carefully thought out and skillfully presented.

It is as near comprehensive as any single volume could be."--History Today "To have died more revered than any other English monarch was an outstanding achievement; and it is worthily commemorated by this outstanding addition to the ...corpus of royal biographies."--Times Education Supplement
