Although over 20 years old, this is still a good choice for anyone studying the period or simply wanting to know a little about a fascinating period of English history. I bought it as I am doing an online study course covering life at the time of Richard III, and have found it valuable background reading.

I appreciated the no nonsense approach of the author. There is no pontification. The book is packed full of fact. If you need a constant reference for the period, a feel for the Zeit Geist of the Later Middle Ages, and the burgeoning of a third class, then this is the book to buy.
