David Carpenter's commentary draws on new discoveries to give an entirely fresh account of Magna Carta's text, origins, survival and enforcement, and shows how it quickly gained a central place in English political life. The book also uses Magna Carta as a lens through which to view thirteenth-century society, looking at women and peasants as well as at barons and knights. The final chapter (the fourteenth) asks whether Magna Carta made a difference. The book has a glossary of terms, map of the English counties, two appendices as well as a bibliography and index.
