This book suggests that Magna Carta was not simply the
product of the evil rule of King John but the culmination of
unease with the Angevin government which went back to the
reign of Henry II. It analyses the reasons for this unease,

Angevins dealt with them. Royal opponents who, early on,
began looking favourably to the Capetian court are also
discussed as are the methods which the Capetian kings of
France used to exploit the situation to their best
