Summary
"Ruling England is about the exercise of political power in England at a time of formative change in the country's history. Framed at one end by the Norman Conquest and at the other by Magna Carta, it describes what happened, why, and with what consequences in politics, government, law and the church. It analyses developments from a royal perspective and focuses on the policies and priorities of the English kings, the limitations of the political system within which they operated, and the efforts they made to expand their power. It explains how the ruler of the most sophisticated kingdom in twelfth-century Europe was eventually compelled to submit to the humiliation of Magna Carta at the start of the thirteenth."--BOOK JACKET
