Print edition of 1215 and All That: A Very, very short history of Magna Carta and King John

This Wednesday is Magna Carta Day, marking the date in 1215 when King John agreed to a series of demands by the country’s leading barons, a conflict that happily influenced important legal principles such as the idea that no one can be imprisoned without due process. 

Anyway, I have good news to further improve my cheery demeanor. My ebook on the subject, 1215 and All That: A Very, very short history of Magna Carta and King John, has been bought up by US publishers Skyhorse, and will appear in print next year. It will form part of a five-part series covering medieval English history; in the meantime you can still buy the ebook in the US and Britain. As writing the series will take a great deal of my time, I’ve had to step down in my role as associate director at the UK 2020 think-tank, but will continue writing elsewhere.

What do you think?
