The reign of King Stephen (1135-54) is famous as a period of weak government, as Stephen and his rival the Empress Matilda contended for power. This is a study of medieval kingship at its most vulnerable. It also shows how individuals and institutions enabled the monarchy to survive. A contemporary chronicler described the reign as "nineteen long winters in which Christ and his saints were asleep". Historians today refer to it simply as 'the Anarchy'. The weakness of government was the result of a disputed succession. Stephen lost control over Normandy, the Welsh marches, and much of the North. Contemporaries noted as signs of weakness the tyranny of the lords of castles, and the break-down of coinage. Stephen remained king for his lifetime, but leading churchmen and laymen negotiated a settlement whereby the crown passed to the Empress's son the future Henry II. This volume by leading scholars gives an original and up-to-date analysis of these major themes, and explains how the English monarchy was able to survive the Anarchy of King Stephen's reign.

T. H. Whites »Der König auf Camelot« ist die umfassendste und eigenständigste Nachschöpfung der unsterblichen Artuslegende. Sie nannten ihn »die Warze«, und wie eine lästige Warze wurde der kleine Art von seinem Vetter Kay auch behandelt. Kay, der Sohn des Hauses, wurde in allen ritterlichen Fertigkeiten unterrichtet. Art hingegen hatte nur den uralten Zauberer Merlin zum Lehrer. Doch nicht Kay gelang es, das sagenumwobene Schwert aus dem Stein zu ziehen, sondern Art, dem künftigen König der Tafelrunde. Als viel später König Arthurs Frau Guinevra eine Liebschaft mit dem tapferen Ritter Lancelot eingeht und der intrigante Sir Mordred nach Arthurs Thron trachtet, nimmt das Schicksal seinen Lauf.

Known as 'the anarchy', the reign of Stephen (1135-1141) saw England plunged into a civil war that illuminated the fatal flaw in the powerful Norman monarchy, that without clear rules ordering succession, conflict between members of William the Conqueror's family were inevitable. But there was another problem, too: Stephen himself. With the nobility of England and Normandy anxious about the prospect of a world without the tough love of the old king Henry I, Stephen styled himself a political panacea, promising strength without oppression. As external threats and internal resistance to his rule accumulated, it was a promise he was unable to keep. Unable to transcend his flawed claim to the throne, and to make the transition from nobleman to king, Stephen's actions betrayed uneasiness in his role, his royal voice never quite ringing true. The resulting violence that spread throughout England was not, or not only, the work of bloodthirsty men on the make. As Watkins shows in this resonant new portrait, it arose because great men struggled to navigate a new and turbulent kind of politics that arose when the king was in eclipse.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Sutherland (retired, history, U. of London, Royal Holloway, UK) has written an impressively complete account of the complex history of religious issues during the reign of Henry IV of France. The chapters, which are organized around political events and issues, detail the intrigue and conflict between Catholic and Protestant in France before and after Henry is made king. In painstaking detail, the volumes discuss the Huguenots, the Catholic League, the role of the popes, the Civil War, Henry's conversion and the problems that resulted, and his rule of absolutism. The ceremony of Henry's conversion and Henry's relationship with Rome receive special attention. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).
