The year 1215 saw a time of global upheaval from which the ripples can still be felt today - but it was also an age of domestic changes and the development of a way of life not entirely different from our own. From the oddest detail to the grandest political struggle, Danny Danzinger and John Gillingham paint an extraordinary picture of this fascinating age, featuring a cast of some of the most enduring names in history - Bad King John, Genghis Khan, St Francis of Assisi - as well as the thousands of ordinary people whose lives were affected by the historical events happening around them. The power struggles are balanced with the social issues of the day - fashion, communications, education, medicine, religion and sex - as the authors explore the attitudes and habits of a nation in flux, and the ways in which they sculpted the modern world.… (més)

This is a fine snapshot of the social, political and personal history of Britain in and around the year 1215, the year the Magna Carta was signed.

While the lords and the King were wrestling for control of Britain, for the people on the streets and country lanes, life was a constant struggle. Obviously “1215” skews towards the royalty and the aristocracy due to the information available from chroniclers of these times but if “1215” does nothing else, it reminds of us of the importance of that document signed at Runnymede over 800 years ago.

The Magna Carta is a wonder of modern governing, all the more fascinating because it initially was a failure.

"1215: The Year of Magna Carta" digs into the world that produced the document, and explores the myth and reality of the historic document.

Danziger's book goes section by section to look at property, religion, and even sex and romance, all of which was impacted by the Magna Carta.

Worth reading.

Generally, a great introduction to the social context and the 'world' of the Magna Carta, everything from Political Culture, to Law and Order, rural and social life.
An era that saw the birth of the English Legal system, and the establishment of Europe's Great Universities and centres of learning- of which one was said to have been home to the legendary female physician, Trotula.

Only the chapter on the 'Wider World'-which inevitably includes the Crusades did I have some argument with. Saladin was not always the honourable man he is often hailed as in the West- and as the book often presents him to be. No mention seemed to be made of his duplicity, especially in the matter of the siege of Acre.
Also, there is evidence of trade with far flung regions such as the Middle East and even India long before the eleventh century- Byzantine Coins have been found in England dating from the Seventh century, as well as Lapis Lazuli stones which hail from Afghanistan.

Overall though, a useful and interesting book, which seems to make good use of contemporary sources, and co-authored by a renowned historian, ( )

This is a very readable, engaging book about what life in England was like, and how that led to the negotiation of the Magna Carta. Well researched and well presented, this is a popular history that provides insights on how the Magna Carta came to be, and its lasting impact on western democracies. ( )

This is perfectly readable, yet full of interesting snippets and some analysis. It intends to describe what England was like in 1215, when Magna Carta was signed. It does this in a series of themed chapters, but it also, within these chapters, takes clauses of the charter and explains why they were in there, why they were important and what they were trying to achieve. So the chapter looking at the forest and laws associated with forest gets into poaching deer, outlaws, what makes a forest and how the laws of the forest were different from outside it. That puts into context the clauses relating to forested areas, and why they were important at the time. It also makes quite clear that the interpretation we may have of Magna Carta now is not what was in the minds of its authors. The clauses concerning right to justice has a certain interpretation now, but it's tucked away in the final quarter of the charter and didn't mean then what it has since been taken to mean. Context is everything. It was a product of its time, but it was sufficiently flexible that it was able to be reissued (with alterations) many times in the next few centuries as the circumstances changed. As written, it contains the seeds of its own downfall, but enough of it was valuable that it was successively re-issued again. The text of the charter is included at the back, and it certainly makes interesting reading in light of the previous book, it changes the way you look at it.
This is an interesting, readable account of this period of the middle ages. ( )
