Domination and Conquest by R. R. Davies

Book Description

This book, a revised and extended version of Professor Davies's 1988 Wiles Lectures, explores the ways in which the kings and aristocracy of England sought to extend their domination over Ireland, Scotland and Wales in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. It analyses the mentalities of domination and subjection - how the English explained and justified their pretensions and how native rulers and societies in Ireland and Wales responded to the challenge. It also explains how the English monarchy came to claim and exercise a measure of 'imperial' control over the whole of the British Isles by the end of the thirteenth century, converting a loose domination into sustained political and governmental control. This is a study of the story of the Anglo-Norman and English domination of the British Isles in the round. Hitherto historians have tended to concentrate on the story in each country - Ireland, Scotland and Wales - individually. This book looks at the issue comparatively, in order to highlight the comparisons and contrasts in the strategies of domination and in the responses of native societies.

First English Empire by R. R. Davies First English Empire, Paperback (July 2002)

This work traces the roots of the United Kingdom to the Middle Ages, when English power extended to most of the British Isles. Issues of self-confident English identity and how far the north and west could be absorbed into the empire continue to cast their shadow.

Revolt of Owen Glendower by R. R. Davies Revolt of Owen Glendower, Paperback (September 2001)

Owain Glyn Dwr is arguably the most famous figure in the history of Wales. His revolt (1400-1409), which was the last major Welsh rebellion against English rule, generated a remarkable vision of Wales as an independent country. This is the first scholarly work for over 50 years to present Owain and his revolt to a general audience.

Age of Conquest by R. R. Davies Age of Conquest, Paperback (September 2000)

This study examines the period when Wales struggled to retain its independence and identity in the face of conquest and subsequent English rule. It explores the nature of power and conflict within Welsh society as well as the transformation of Wales under an English crown.
