The Wars of the Roses : politics and the constitution in England, c. 1437-1509 by Christine Carpenter( Book )
19 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 527 libraries worldwide
The Wars of the Roses was a period of major crisis in English politics and in the lives of the English landowning classes. This book attempts to explain why the Wars occurred, and with what results, by placing them in the context of the ruling classes' expectations of kingship and governance at that time. --from publisher description
Locality and polity : a study of Warwickshire landed society, 1401-1499 by Christine Carpenter( Book )
18 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 274 libraries worldwide
"This is a comprehensive study of minor landowners--the gentry--in one county in fifteenth-century England. In common with other recent local studies of the later middle ages, it builds upon the seminal work of K.B. McFarlane, looking at the political and social world in the localities from which the nobles drew their power."--BOOK JACKET. "The book aims to present a fully-rounded picture of the experiences of the gentry, relating their private to their public lives, their permanent concerns to the changing needs of local and national politics. Its approach is thus both thematic, exploring the main elements, often private in nature, which moulded their public actions, such as marriage, estate management and sense of family, and chronological, presenting a detailed narrative of politics and an account of political structures and relationships."--BOOK JACKET. "The work takes a conscious stand for a return to a more 'constitutional' form of political history than the orthodoxy of the moment for the period, which takes patronage and personalities to be the prime movers in politics. This is evident in its concern with issues of stability and disorder (much influenced by recent work on law and society) and with the structure of the polity, with the inter-relationship of local and national politics, and with the ideas of the political classes. The book is intended as a contribution to the history of England as a whole in the fifteenth century and to the study of the long-term development of the English landed classes and the English constitution."--BOOK JACKET

12 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 195 libraries worldwide
The Armburgh papers : the Brokholes inheritance in Warwickshire, Hertfordshire, and Essex, c.1417-c.1453 : Chetham's Manuscript Mun. E.6.10 (4) by Joan Armburgh( Book )
8 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and English, Middle [1100-1500] and held by 174 libraries worldwide
The material mostly derives from the period c.1420-50, one of growing unease in national politics, which the letters to some extent reflect; but they are more concerned with affairs closer to home, and provide fascinating insights on local politics, the networks of 'bastard feudalism' which bound the gentry to their lords and to each other, on the impact of lengthy litigation on a gentry family (especially its finances), and, more generally, on the management of their lands and business affairs
Political society in later medieval England : a festschrift for Christine Carpenter by Benjamin Thompson( Book )
6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
Christine Carpenter's influential work on late-medieval English society aspires to encompass a wide spectrum of human experience. Her vision of "total" history embeds the study of politics in a multi-dimensional social framework which ranges from mentalities and ideology to economy and geography. This collection of essays celebrates Professor Carpenter's achievement by drawing attention to the social underpinning of political culture; the articles reflect the range of her interests, chronologically from the thirteenth century to the sixteenth, and thematically from ideology and culture, through government and its officials, the nobility, gentry and yeomanry, the law and the church, to local society. The connection between centre and locality pervades the volume, as does the interplay of the ideological and cultural with the practical and material. The essays highlight both how ideas were moulded in political debate and action, and how their roots sprang from social pressures and interests. It also emphasises the wider cultural aspects of topics too-easily conceived as local and material
