The essays in this volume explore themes long seen as central to the history of late medieval England and Europe. They examine the strength of opposition to Henry IV's usurpation, the nature and extent of the lollards' resistance to orthodox religion, and the contrasting causes of violence and disorder in the remote border regions at opposite ends of the country, in Cornwall and in the north-west. Subversion of its authority might be counteracted by a regime which recognized the importance of pageantry to bolster its public profile, while a complex weave of patronage, private interest and dedicated service enabled the Exchequer to function through periods of financial crisis. Relations between the Crown and urban centres, potentially a cause of tension, were eased by an emerging body of professional urban law-officers prepared to act as intermediaries.

The essays either add new layers of complexity to the view of a given issue, or seek to provoke the reader to a different perspective altogether. MEDIEVAL REVIEW A thought-provoking collection of essays. EHR Offers a great deal of interest over a wide range of subjects.. A good collection of papers. THE RICARDIAN
