Review:

"MT Clanchy′s supremely well–written account of the nation and its kings during this period retains its excellent introduction to the development of England after the Normans, but the three new chapters make it even more pertinent reading. Given current concerns over Britishness, this is a lively addition to the debate on where Britain′s national identity derives from." BBC History Magazine "A very good introduction to medieval England. The questions Clanchy raises, his frequent challenges to the views of other historians, his thoughtful and learned discussions of major issues in the history of medieval England, and his generous and explicit use of primary sources all combine to offer rich material for reflection and discussion." Medieval Review "The third edition of England and its Rulers is much more than ′just′ a textbook. It is, hands down, the liveliest, the most accessible and the most consistently interesting account we have of the multicultural influences that shaped the medieval English polity, and that made medieval England such a distinct and peculiar kingdom within the British Isles. There is a freshness and a breadth of vision and reference in Michael Clanchy′s judgments that sets this book apart from all its competitors." Robert C. Stacey, University of Washington "Marvellously lucid, often provocative, and always aware that England′s history must be discussed in its European context, this remains a superb book to stimulate interest. And the addition of three new chapters, on the creation of wealth, the matter of Britain, and lordship deepens the treatment and adds a further lively treatment of subjects very topical with historians at the moment." David Bates, Institute of Historical Research " England and its Rulers wins its third edition on merit, and my students will relish it, as they did the previous ones. It has been the best kind of textbook, the kind that gives the genuinely new reader the material needed to enter an alien world ... .The young will savor these pages and surely ask for more." Paul Hyams, Cornell University
