Summary
"English Political Culture in the Fifteenth Century is a new and original study of how politics worked in late medieval England. It throws new light on a much-discussed period in English history. Michael Hicks explores the standards, values and principles that motivated contemporary politicians, and the aspirations and interests of both aristocracy and peasants alike." "Hicks argues that the Wars of the Roses did not result from fundamental weaknesses in the political system but from the collision of exceptional circumstances that quickly passed away. Overall, he shows that the era was one of stability and harmony, and that there were effective mechanisms for keeping the peace. Structure and continuities, Hicks argues, were more prominent than change." "Students and teachers of late medieval England will find this a key text in the area, as it covers a broad spectrum in a particularly focused way."--Jacket
