The dramatic period 1225-1360 in Britain witnessed Simon de Montfort's challenge to the crown, Edward II's deposition and death, great English victories in France, and the disaster of the Black Death. It also saw the development of the state, with the emergence of parliament a key element. Michael Prestwich provides a comprehensive study of this period, illuminating themes of politics, economics, war, and society.
