(with a new foreword by D.A. Carpenter) This account of John's reign is fair-minded, revealing and extremely readable. Professor Warren's analysis of the disputed succession, the conflict with France, the clash with Pope Innocent III, and the events leading to Magna Carta provide an intimate picture of the business of the Crown.
