Summary
"In this new translation by David Crouch, Martin Aurell revives the passion and politics, revolts and reversals of the Plantagenet Empire. Using the complex sources for the period, the author uncovers an intricate web of sophisticated decision making and political manoeuvring, and brings to life the world of the twelfth-century political consultants and gurus: men capable of thinking in the sort of geo-political terms hitherto unimagined in the earlier medieval period." "A must read for any serious medievalist and all university students studying the twelfth and thirteenth century. David Crouch's translation now allows an English-speaking audience access to this study of power at its source."--BOOK JACKET
