Warwick the Kingmaker

Politics, Power and Fame. AJ Pollard. ISBN 978-1-84725-182-4. Hambledon Continuum Books, 2007.
A fresh assessment of the life of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick who was for 12 years one of the most important figures in English policy and one of the celebrities of the 15th century. I still don't like the man, nor am I convinced by the revisionist viewpoint of Pollard, but the book is highly informative and quite approachable.
