About this product
- DescriptionWarwick the Kingmaker was a fifteenth-century celebrity; a military hero, self-publicist and populist. For twelve years, he was the arbiter of English politics, t hesitating to set up and put down kings. In the dominant strand of recent English historical writing, Warwick is condemned as a man who hindered the development of the modern state, and yet in earlier centuries he was admired as an exemplar of true bility who defied the centralising tendencies of the crown. A. J. Pollard offers a fresh assessment, to which neither approach is entirely appropriate, of the man whose nickname has become synymous with power broking.
- Author BiographyA.J. Pollard was professor of history at the University of Teesside until his retirement. His research focussed on the economic, social and political history of fifteenth-century England. His many books include Fifteenth-Century England, Richard III and the Princes in the Tower and The Wars of the Roses.
