This book was written in 1951, so is probably more than a little out of date in some ways, but I thoroughly enjoyed Lady Stanton's use of contemporary sources to illustrate her arguments and give some context to her examination of English society during the eleventh through thirteenth centuries.

This is a description of England during the two-and-a-half centuries since the Norman Conquest. A chronological setting is given to the developments of society during the period, by reference to political events of the time. The relations between the King, the nobles, the Church and the people are described and the author also sketches the stages by which departments of state evolved out of the individual authority of officers of the royal household, and parliament out of the King's control.
