Pressestimmen

'the new edition provides important new insights [and] have made an excellent book even better' The Monmouthshire Antiquary 'Crouch has added substance to our understanding of the traditional move towards forms of 'bastard feudalism'.' History Reviews of the First Edition: 'refreshingly readable...makes a contribition to medieval studies quite out of proportion to its size' Times Literary Supplement 'a tour de force...The world of the Angevin court is splendidly recreated, and Dr Crouch succeeds admirably in explaining the reality of the chivalric ethos. For him, the celebrations after a battle had more in common with the atmosphere in the bar of a rugby club than with that of the enclosures at Henley or the ski-slopes of Klosters - Dr. Crouch is adept at finding striking modern parallels'. History Today ' Crouch resurrects a lost world in fluent, economic and readable prose, often enlivened by colloquialisms and contemporary parallels' Southern History 'Written in a racy, accessible, idiosyncratic style, which might have appealed to the Marshal himself, it should be read by everyone interested in medieval people, politics and society' Archives
