Richard I by John Gillingham( )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unique among the kings of England, Richard I played a leading role in the great events of world history - in his case the struggle for control of the Middle East by two great religions, Islam and Christianity. No other monarch took on a challenge remotely comparable with that of the Third Crusade: taking a fleet and army to the eastern end of the Mediterranean and facing down an adversary as formidable as the great Saladin." "Eighteenth- and nineteenth-century historians such as Hume, Gibbon and Stubbs criticized Richard for his neglect of domestic government and policy, and cast him as a careless ruler and bad husband." "Harnessing the latest sources and interpretations, John Gillingham provides a new assessment of Richard I, looking at what matters in history as well as what matters in legend."--Jacket

Richard the Lionheart by John Gillingham( Book )

32 editions published between 1978 and 1996 in 4 languages and held by 1,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard I (8 September 1157? 6 April 1199) was King of England from 6 July 1189 until his death. He also ruled as Duke of Normandy (as Richard IV), Duke of Aquitaine, Duke of Gascony, Lord of Cyprus, Count of Anjou, Count of Maine, Count of Nantes, and Overlord of Brittany at various times during the same period. He was known as Richard Cœur de Lion, or Richard the Lionheart, even before his accession, because of his reputation as a great military leader and warrior. The Saracens called him Melek-Ric or Malek al-Inkitar? King of England."--Wikipedia
The Wars of the Roses : peace and conflict in fifteenth-century England by John Gillingham( Book )

30 editions published between 1981 and 2015 in English and held by 1,213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The War of the Roses have traditionally been seen as the last dying convulsion of the Middle Ages, a marker between the medieval and the modern, and above all as a period of violence, horror and civil disorder. John Gillingham's new book shows that this is a spurious view of the period. His authoritative analysis of fifteenth-century warfare proves that the actual battles of the wars involved far fewer men than has been assumed, and that, apart from the Northumbria and the Scottish border, England was a society organized for peace. The arts of peace flourished in the fifteenth century, which saw the beginning of printing in England, the rise of literacy and growing interest in vernacular architecture. The wars which sporadically interrupted that peace were fought in a manner calculated to bring them to a swift conclusion. The author shatters the Shakespearian myth of perpetual bloody conflict and shows that the wars had remarkably little effect on the social and religious life of the country or on the structure of politics. -- from dust cover
The Angevin empire by John Gillingham( Book )

28 editions published between 1903 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: At its greatest extent, the Angevin Empire stretched from the Scottish border to the Pyrenees. For fifty years it was the dominant political entity and 'English' and 'French' history were inextricably woven together. This study looks at how these disparate territories came together, how they were ruled, and whether they truly constituted an empire. The new edition of this groundbreaking work has been thoroughly revised and carries two new chapters

Medieval Britain : a very short introduction by John Gillingham( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published as part of the best-selling The Oxford Illustrated History of Britain, John Gillingham and Ralph A. Griffiths' Very Short Introduction to Medieval Britain covers the establishment of the Anglo-Norman monarchy in the early Middle Ages, through to England's failure to dominate the British Isles and France in the later Middle Ages. Out of the turbulence came stronger senses of identity in Scotland, Wales, and Ireland. Yet this was an age, too, of growing definition of Englishness and of a distinctive English cultural tradition

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life and times of Richard I by John Gillingham( Book )

12 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The enduring image of Richard Coeur-de-Lion is of the warrior king, the crusading knight, the prince of troubadours ... Yet this image presents only one aspect of Richard's character. For he was not only a chivalrous knight, but also a cautious general, planning the details of his strategy and siege warfare with infinite care
Coal, steel, and the rebirth of Europe, 1945-1955 : the Germans and French from Ruhr conflict to Economic Community by John Gillingham( )

27 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first large-scale historical investigation of the critical first stage of European integration, the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC). John Gillingham discusses the thirty year Franco-German struggle for heavy industry mastery in Western Europe, describes the dreams and schemes of Jean Monnet, who designed the heavy industry pool, reveals the American vision that inspired his work, and discloses how his transatlantic partners used their great authority to assure its completion. Gillingham also lays bare the operating mechanisms of the coal-steel pool, showing that contrary to the hopes of Monnet and his supporters, the ECSC restored rather than reformed the European economy, leaving as a legacy not a detrustified industry, but one still dominated by the giant producers of the Ruhr
Proceedings of the Battle Conference 2003 by Battle Conference on Anglo-Norman Studies( )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With one exception, the papers in this volume of Anglo-Norman Studies range in time from c.1000 to c.1200 and in place from Anjou to the Irish Sea zone. The exception, the Allen Brown memorial Lecture, surveys images of the Normans in historical and imaginative literature from the twelfth to the twentieth century. Other studies of narrative sources focus on Dudo of St. Quentin's history of the Norman dukes, on the Vita Aedwardi Regis, on the Fenland monastic chronicles, and on the chronicles of Anjou. Tombstone, charters and a chronicle are used to elucidate the Warenne view of the past. Two papers analyse both charter and chronicle evidence in re-considerations of the succession disputes following the deaths of William I and William II. In addition there are papers on the clergy of the diocese of Hereford, on Norman Benedictine abbots, and on Anglo-Irish relations in the eleventh century."--Jacket

William II : the red king by John Gillingham( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2019 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William II (1087-1100), or William Rufus, will always be most famous for his death: killed by an arrow while out hunting, perhaps through accident or perhaps murder. But, as John Gillingham makes clear in this elegant book, as the son and successor to William the Conqueror it was William Rufus who had to establish permanent Norman rule. A ruthless, irascible man, he frequently argued acrimoniously with his older brother Robert over their father's inheritance - but he also handed out effective justice, leaving as his legacy one of the most extraordinary of all medieval buildings, Westminster Hall
