David Carpenter’s book is a landmark in Magna Carta studies. His new commentary draws on recent discoveries to give an entirely fresh account of Magna Carta’s text, origins, survival and enforcement, showing how it quickly gained a central place in English political life. He also uses Magna Carta as a lens through which to view thirteenth-century society, focusing on women and peasants as well as barons and knights.
