9780241953372: Magna Carta (Penguin Classics)

For its 800th anniversary, a new edition of one of democracy’s founding legal documents, with extensive new commentary

Wrested by rebellious barons from a very reluctant King John, Magna Carta set out a series of rights and duties that have been appealed to, ignored, suppressed, and argued about ever since. Here, David Carpenter’s forceful new translation is accompanied by extensive commentary that sheds new light on this illustrious legal document.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

About the Author :

David Carpenter, who has translated the text of Magna Carta and written the text of this edition, is Professor of Medieval History at King's College, London. He is the author of The Struggle for Mastery in Britain, 1066-1284, a volume in the Penguin History of Britain series.

Review :

“An invaluable new commentary.” —Jill Lepore, The New Yorker

“A magisterial re-examination of the Charter.” —The Times Literary Supplement

“Of all the books that commemorated the octingentenary of the signing of Magna Carta, the one that stands out for me is David Carpenter’s new Penguin Classics edition. . . . Carpenter deserves to replace Sir James Holt as the standard authority, and an unfailingly readable one too.” —Ferdinand Mount, The Times Literary Supplement, “Books of the Year”

Description du livre Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. David Carpenter deserves to replace Sir James Holt as the standard authority, and an unfailingly readable one too. Ferdinand Mount, TLS An invaluable new commentary Jill Leopore, New Yorker With a new commentary by David Carpenter No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgment of his equals or by the law of the land. Magna Carta, forced on King John in 1215 by rebellion, is one of the most famous documents in world history. It asserts a fundamental principle: that the ruler is subject to the law. Alongside a new text and translation of the Charter, David Carpenter s commentary draws on new discoveries to give an entirely fresh account of Magna Carta s text, origins, survival and enforcement, showing how it quickly gained a central place in English political life. It also uses Magna Carta as a lens through which to view thirteenth-century society, focusing on women and peasants as well as barons and knights. The book is a landmark in Magna Carta studies. 2015 is the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta s creation - an event which will be marked with exhibitions, commemorations and debates in all the countries over whose constitutions and legal assumptions the shadow of Magna Carta hangs.
