Product Details


“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”
