Beschreibung

Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, xv, 361 pp, ills. From the blurb: " This book is a study in the evolution of English society between c. 1180 and c. 1280. It deliberately avoids over-concentration upon the county, arguing that this approach tends towards anachronism and distortion. It emphasises instead the locality, bearing in mind that the presence of a territorial lordship and an honour court might help to shape local identity. The book proceeds by means of a detailed analysis of the honour and locality of Coventry, concentrating upon the nature of lordship and upon the social and economic fortunes of knights, free tenants and local administrators, and the relationships between them. A further dimension is added by the existence of an important seignorial borough at the centre of the locality. The book therefore not only explores the role of the town in the evolution of the knightly class, but also examines more broadly the relationship between town and country in this period. Following this analysis the book turns to a broader consideration of the fortunes of the knightly class in Warwickshire and to the issues surrounding the evolution of knighthood in general. Thus it makes a significant contribution towards our understanding of the origins of the English gentry." Near Fine in slightly used dustwrapper. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-35756

This book is a study in the evolution of English society between c. 1180 and c. 1280. The argument proceeds by means of a detailed analysis of the honour and locality of Coventry, concentrating upon the nature of lordship and upon the social and economic fortunes of knights, free tenants and local administrators, and the relationships between them. A further dimension is added by the existence of an important seignorial borough at the centre of the locality. The book therefore not only explores the role of the town in the evolution of the knightly class, but also examines more broadly the relationship between town and country in this period. Following this analysis the book turns to a broader consideration of the fortunes of the knightly class in the Warwickshire region and to the issues surrounding the evolution of knighthood in general.
