Omschrijving

For 800 years, Magna Carta has inspired those prepared to face torture, imprisonment, and even death in the fight against tyranny. But the belief that the Great Charter gave us such freedoms as democracy, trial by jury, and equality beneath the law has its roots in myth. Back in 1215, when King John was forced to issue Magna Carta, it was regarded as little more than a stalling tactic in the bloody conflict between monarch and barons. Here, Derek J. Taylor embarks on a mission to uncover the "golden thread of truth" that runs through the story of the Great Charter. On a journey through space and time, he takes us from the palaces and villages of medieval England, through the castles and towns of France and the Middle East, to the United States of the 21st century. Along the way, the characters who gave birth to the Charter, and those who later fought in its name, are brought to life at the places where they lived, struggled and died. As he discovers, the real history of Magna Carta is far more engaging, exciting, and surprising than any simple fairy tale of good defeating evil.
