The long-awaited prequel to Chronicles of the Revolution covers the first twenty years (1377-97) of Richard II's reign. This richly-documented period offers exceptional opportunities and challenges to students, and the editor has selected material from a wide range of sources: well-known English chronicles, foreign chronicles, and legal, administrative and financial records. These are arranged chronologically to form a coherent narrative of the reign. Clear and lively commentary and notes enable readers to make the fullest use of each document. The introduction describes the complex domestic and international situation which confronted the young king, and offers guidance on the strengths and weaknesses of the reign's leading chronicles. The dramatic and diverse politics of the reign of Richard II make this the ideal special subject, and an accessible, affordable, student-friendly documentary history of Richard II's reign has long been needed. This book is designed to fill that gap.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This is an excellent supplementary text for any course on medieval Britain.'

Large sections of the Anonimalle Chronicle and the Evesham chronicle are
translated here for the first time. This volume is strong on local monastic chronicles,
and sources taken from ecclesiastical sources, such as bishop's registers,
or concerning the hierarchy, such as an excellent libel against Alexander Neville,
archbishop of York. The translations are workmanlike and readable.
