Reading List: 1215 - The Year of the Magna Carta

1215 - The Year of the Magna Carta
 by Danny Danziger & John Gillingham

Knowing how A Distant Mirror turned out, I'm hoping for something a little more lively with this latest historical survey.  Not being British, I'm interested to know just what kind of impact the Magna Carta actually had.  It's something I certainly studied, briefly, in school, a long time ago, but then, it also happened a long time ago, nearly a millennium ago.  I don't claim to be an expert in just about anything, so my interest is fairly loose, even though I love history and know a certain amount of it.  Hopefully it'll be fun!
