The Wars of the Roses Politics and the Constitution in England, c– Get access. Post-Cold War Vietnam: This book places the events of the century within a clearly delineated framework of constitutional structures, practices and expectations, in an attempt to show the meaning of the apparently frenetic and purposeless Cited by: From Henry IV, the first Lancastrian king, to Richard III, The Wars of the Roses follows the history of the kings of the houses of Lancaster and York who shaped this tumultuous period of English history. Anthony Cheetham provides insight into the politics, society, and economy of this time, and above all, he conveys the personal histories and characters of its rulers.3/5(1).

It’s not often that a book manages to be both scholarly and a page-turner, but British historian Jones succeeds on both counts in this entertaining follow-up to his bestselling The Plantagenets.   After this, however, Lady of the Roses departs from the commonplaces of romance fiction. Worth's meticulous research into the War of the Roses brings this tumultuous period of English history alive, and her telling of Isobel's story clearly benefits from the past 30 years of academic research into the lives of medieval women.5/5(5).

The War of the Roses is a timeless novel. Yet, this is a story uniquely of our own time, where more and more people measure their happiness and success in terms of the things they possess. This is the book that inspired one of the most famous movies about divorce ever produced.   The War of the Roses as a film, to my mind, is an excellent rendition. In celebration of this milestone, readers can purchase the eBook for $ through Oct. 20th. Warren Adler is best known for The War of the Roses, his masterpiece fictionalization of a macabre divorce turned into the Golden Globe and BAFTA nominated dark comedy hit.
