This excellent short introduction to Magna Carta is the best available. Professor Nicholas Vincent introduces the charter to a modern audience, explaining its origins in the troubled reign of King John and traces the significance of its role as a totemic symbol of a subject’s right to protection against absolute sovereign authority.

Drawing on the great advances made during the past two decades in our understanding of thirteenth-century English history, Professor Vincent explains why Magna Carta continues to be of enormous popular interest.

Paperback, 152 pages, published by Oxford University Press (2012).
