    A well researched book, dating back to 1961, on the history of England in the fifteenth century, thoughrecent research would doubtless have led Jacob to modify some of his views There are chapters on the Church, economic history, the role of towns, and the arts, but much of the focus is on military and political history There is relatively little on social history, and, as with other books in the original Oxford History of England, next to nothing on family life and the role of women To A well researched book, dating back to 1961, on the history of England in the fifteenth century, thoughrecent research would doubtless have led Jacob to modify some of his views There are chapters on the Church, economic history, the role of towns, and the arts, but much of the focus is on military and political history There is relatively little on social history, and, as with other books in the original Oxford History of England, next to nothing on family life and the role of women Today this approach seems old fashioned, but, in what it covers, the book is fairly comprehensive The assessment of Richard III seeks to give a degree of balance, but is still largely negative, reflecting a little too much too much the propaganda of the Tudors, who were themselves ruthless in their maintenance of power.It is, though, very much a book for those with an academic interest Presentation is fairly dry, and paragraphs are frequently exceedingly long, some extending to the best part of two pages This is not an easy read for those without a specialist interest This was a very eventful century, with the deposition of Richard II, the latter part of the Hundred Years War, the political infighting that led to the Wars of the Roses, the controversial reign of Richard III, and his final defeat The presentation in the book is, alas, dry to the point of tedium
