READING: Jeruzalem is het centrum van de wereld, de hoofdstad van drie religies, de prijs van vele veroveraars en het strijdtoneel van botsende beschavingen. De stad is zo vaak in wisselende handen geweest dat dit standaardwerk ook een geschiedenis is van het woelige Midden-Oosten, van het verre verleden tot het heden. `Montefiore heeft een fraai portret geschilderd van een even mooie als explosieve stad. ***** de Volkskrant `Meesterlijk [...] een briljant verteld verhaal dat meesleurt, maar ook een belangrijk boek.' Elsbeth Etty in NRC Handelsblad `Overdonderende geschiedenis van de belangrijkste stad op aarde. Bart Funnekotter in NRC Handelsblad `Magistrale biografie. Trouw `De grote waarde van dit boek is zijn helderheid. Het boek ontrafelt het web van de vele mythen die rond de stad zijn gecreëerd []. De Standaard `Een goede geschiedenis [...] De toon waarop de auteur zijn gegevens weergeeft is vaak ook met een vleugje humor of met milde kritiek, en dat maakt de vaak wrede geschiedenis meer verteerbaar.

READING: England, 1154. As Henry II seizes the throne after years of turmoil, a new dynasty is poised to haul this hitherto turbulent nation out from the Dark Ages and transform it into the nation state we recognize today. Featuring some of England's greatest but also most notorious kings, the house of Plantagenet would reign for over 300 blood-soaked, yet foundational, years. The dynasty provides some of the most evocative names in our history: from the brave yet rash Richard the Lionheart, his treacherous brother John, the hapless Richard II, and the hero of Agincourt Henry V, through to the controversial Richard III. And in this authoritative, intelligent and grippingly written book, acclaimed historian Derek Wilson brings this thrilling era to life.

READING: 'The Hollow Crown is exhilarating, epic, blood-and-roses history . . . Jones's material is thrilling . . . There is fine scholarly intuition on display here and a mastery of the grand narrative; it is a supremely skilful piece of storytelling.' Sunday Telegraph The fifteenth century saw the crown of England change hands seven times as the great families of England fought to the death for power, majesty and the right to rule. The Hollow Crown completes Dan Jones' epic history of medieval England, and describes how the Plantagenets tore themselves apart to be finally replaced by the Tudors. Some of the greatest heroes and villains in British history were thrown together in these turbulent times: Henry V, whose victory at Agincourt and prudent rule at home marked the high point of the medieval monarchy; Edward IV, who was handed his crown by the scheming soldier Warwick the Kingmaker, before their alliance collapsed into a fight to the death; and the last Plantagenet, Richard III, who stole the throne and murdered his own nephews, the Princes in the Tower. Finally, the Tudors arrived - but even their rule was only made certain in the 1520s, when Henry VIII ruthlessly hunted down his family's last remaining enemies. In the midst this tumult, chivalry was reborn, the printing press arrived and the Renaissance began to flourish. With vivid descriptions of the battle of Towton, where 28,000 men died in a single morning, and the Battle of Bosworth Field, at which Richard III was hacked down, this is the real story behind Shakespeare's famous history plays.

READING: The author of the New York Times bestseller The Plantagenets chronicles the next chapter in British history—the historical backdrop for Game of Thrones The crown of England changed hands five times over the course of the fifteenth century, as two branches of the Plantagenet dynasty fought to the death for the right to rule. In this riveting follow-up to The Plantagenets, celebrated historian Dan Jones describes how the longest-reigning British royal family tore itself apart until it was finally replaced by the Tudors. Some of the greatest heroes and villains of history were thrown together in these turbulent times, from Joan of Arc to Henry V, whose victory at Agincourt marked the high point of the medieval monarchy, and Richard III, who murdered his own nephews in a desperate bid to secure his stolen crown. This was a period when headstrong queens and consorts seized power and bent men to their will. With vivid descriptions of the battles of Towton and Bosworth, where the last Plantagenet king was slain, this dramatic narrative history revels in bedlam and intrigue. It also offers a long-overdue corrective to Tudor propaganda, dismantling their self-serving account of what they called the Wars of the Roses.

READING: Conn Iggulden, De Rozenoorlogen Stormvogel Koning Henry V, de Leeuw van Engeland, is allang dood. In 1437, na jaren van regentschap, is de vrome en zachtmoedige Henry VI volwassen en bestijgt hij de Engelse troon. Zijn kwakkelende gezondheid en zwakke geest maken van hem een slappe koning; Henry gaat ervan uit dat zijn vertrouwelingen, meesterspion Derry Brewer en William de la Pole, de Graaf van Suffolk, zijn koninkrijk bestieren. Maar er zijn er, zoals Richard Plantagenet, de Graaf van York, die vinden dat Engeland geleid moet worden door een sterke vorst, wil het koninkrijk overleven. Terwijl Engelse gebiedsdelen in Frankrijk bedreigd worden en er thuis geruchten gaan over opstanden, groeit de angst dat Henry en zijn adviseurs het land naar de afgrond laten glijden. Als er een huwelijk wordt bekokstoofd tussen Henry en de jonge, adellijke Française Marguerite van Anjou, wordt die angst werkelijkheid. Donkere wolken pakken zich samen boven Engeland als koning Henry en zijn volgelingen thuis en in het buitenland worden aangevallen. Wie of wat kan het koninkrijk nog redden voordat het te laat is? Conn Iggulden is een van de succesvolste schrijvers van historische fictie. De Rozenoorlogen, de oorlog tussen de huizen York en Lancaster, vormden eveneens de inspiratie voor de serie Game of Thrones. Iggulden woont in Hertfordshire met zijn vrouw en kinderen. `Iggulden bevindt zich op eenzame hoogte als het gaat om epische, historische fictie.' Daily Mirror `Iggulden vertelt een weergaloos goed verhaal.' The Times

READING: A paradox is a statement that apparently contradicts itself and yet might be true. Here, I am looking at a paradox of a person who, during one period of his life, was so different from what he is reported to have become at another certain point. Were there two Richards? A Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? Did he have a split personality? But then, where was Mr. Hyde during his early life? Herein we examine Richard’s life and how, and if, he became what he was accused of by the Tudors after his death.

READING: Plantagenet is the name given to the English royal house descended from the union of Queen Matilda of England and her second husband Geoffrey of Anjou. The name derived from Geoffrey's nickname, which came from the sprig of broom (planta genet) which he wore in his hat. The Plantagenets ruled England for more than three hundred years, from the accession of reign of the dynasty's founder, Matilda and Geoffrey's son, Henry II, in 1154, to the death of the last Plantagenet, Richard III, at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. The Plantagenets: The Kings That Made Britain is a compelling, year-by-year chronology of a tumultuous and critical period in the development of the English nation. Each year is covered by a concise, informative and accessible narrative, amplified by extensive quotation from contemporary sources and accompanied by generously captioned and stunning images of the period-including illuminations, portraits, maps, royal seals, tapestries and other artifacts. Authoritative, informative and sumptuous, and compiled by a scholar who is steeped in knowledge of the period, The Plantagenets: The Kings That Made Britain brings a critical era of English history dramatically and vividly to life. It is the perfect gift book for anyone with a love of, or fascination for, medieval English history.
