In this study of Stephen's reign, Keith Stringer looks at the relationship between government, warfare, and the rise and fall of medieval states. Using primary sources and the most recent research, he offers an important re-evaluation of the so-called `Anarchy' and a radical reassessment of Stephen's ability as a ruler.


`Dr Stringer's pamphlet will be essential reading for A level students of a period. It is clear concise and above all gives a vivid sense of the changing patterns of historical debate.' - Teaching History
