9781781858851: Magna Carta: The Making and Legacy of the Great Charter

From the New York Times–bestselling author of The Plantagenets comes a beautifully produced account of the signing, impact, and legacy of a document that became one of the most influential statements in the history of democracy

On a summer's day in 1215 a beleaguered English monarch met a group of disgruntled barons in a meadow by the river Thames named Runnymede. Beset by foreign crisis and domestic rebellion, King John was fast running out of options. On June 15 he reluctantly agreed to fix his regal seal to a document that would change the world. A milestone in the development of constitutional politics and the rule of law, the "Great Charter" established an Englishman's right to Habeas Corpus and set limits to the exercise of royal power. For the first time a group of subjects had forced an English king to agree to a document that limited his powers by law and protected their rights. Dan Jones's elegant and authoritative narrative of the making and legacy of the Magna Carta is amplified by profiles of the barons who secured it and a full text of the charter in both Latin and English.

About the Author:

Dan Jones is an award-winning journalist and a pioneer of the resurgence of interest in medieval history. He is the bestselling author of The Plantagenets: The Warrior Kings and Queens Who Made England and The Wars of the Roses.

Review:

"By putting the Magna Carta in its proper historical context, the brilliant young historian Dan Jones triumphantly answers the questions he poses in his introduction, about how it came to be granted, what it meant at the time, and what it should mean to us today. This beautifully illustrated book makes the eight centuries that now separate us from the Magna Carta slip away, and brings us into direct contact with the most important document in the history of human liberty."  —Andrew Roberts, author, The Storm of War
