Review ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ By David Starkey By David Starkey ☆ 9 Free read Read Magna Carta: The True Story Behind the Charter Na. This is a book about the Magna Carta document and not much else Which makes it uite a short bookSure there s context provided on how it came about namely a uick tour of the reign of King John But it s an exceedingly brief history and it s somewhat frustrating that Starkey tends to uote from just two primary historical sources one of which he dismisses as unreliable and the second the reader should dismiss as unreliableStill as a short tour of mediaeval history it is interesting but it stands out as much for its limited perspective as much as anything else and doesn t really seem to work well as either a populist book or an academic textThe one saving grace is that it does include different versions of the Magna Carta for comparison in the Appendix

    (PDF FREE) [Magna Carta: The True Story Behind the Charter] ¸ By David Starkey Some genuinely fascinating history behind this most famous of documents. I must confess that I was unaware that the Magna Carta sealed at Runnymede was never the one implemented or of the contention that it caused, the interventions of Rome and France and the near civil war that ensued.

    Very nicely written and easy

    By David Starkey ☆ 9 Free read Review ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ By David Starkey (PDF FREE) [Magna Carta: The True Story Behind the Charter] ¸ By David Starkey Appallingly written drivel. At least that is the impression after 10 pages, which was as many as could bear of this school boy level rubbish. Who would believe that an editor allowed a phrase such as “Phillip.. was also better at being bad than John”. Having stated he would confine himself to a decade of history in some groundbreaking approach, he proceeds to give a tedious and grammatically weak background with no apparent purpose.
