Details

No king aroused, and continues to arouse, stronger passions - for and against - than Richard III. During his reign no king faced more determined opposition, yet in this century no king's posthumous reputation has been more staunchly defended. In interpreting the evidence, some of which was itself the product of the contemporary war of propaganda, is it possible to steer a middle course between the pro- and anti-Richard factions? When assessing Richard III, should we apply "medieval" or "modern" standards? In this book seven historians, all specialists on the 15th century but with widely divergent views, consider seven different aspects of the life and reign of Richard III: his reputation, his early life, the events of 1483, his court, his government, his foreign policy, and his military career.
