Oxfordshire sessions of the peace in the reign of Richard II


Edited by Elisabeth G Kimball (1983)



This exceedingly interesting volume has a wider scope than its title may suggest, and it enables us to see how interlocking jurisdictions functioned in a particular locality at the end of the 14th century. The years in question, 1387-98, belong to a critical period in English politics, and the administration of justice, whether at the centre or locally, was a controversial issue at the lime. This publication skilfully relates local events to national history, the well-chosen sources are finely presented to the reader in a format that is a pleasure to use.
