  • DESCRIPTION

    The Wars of the Roses and the struggle for the throne between the Houses of York and Lancaster dominate the history of England in the latter half of the fifteenth century. But what were the causes of over forty years of sporadic civil war and how was political stability at last restored? Andrew Pickering aanalyses the historical debates surrounding the characters and events. Topics include fifteenth-century kingship and the reign of Henry VI, the end of the Yorkists, Henry VII and the establishment of the Tudor dynasty, and social and economic change in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries.
