'Ian Mortimer has earned a well-deserved reputation as a writer capable of communicating the fascination of medieval history ... His speciality is the peculiar and the personal: the hidden springs by which the actions of the past were moved ... he still has much to communicate about his explorations of the forgotten corners of Medieval England.' --Sanford Lakoff 'It is good that Mortimer is trying to come up with answers and his book provides much food for thought. There is a fine mind at work here.'--Sanford Lakoff '[Mortimer] revisits the methodology of medieval history, analysing numerous key historical texts in a new way to shed a refreshing light on the facts.' --Sanford Lakoff 'His [Mortimer's] experimental and challenging approach finds fertile ground in the intricacies and mysteries of court faction, noble rebellion and royal intrigue.' --Sanford Lakoff
