The transformations and settled policies that made England a fortunate and peaceful country by 1509 are set forth in careful and patterned detail by J.R. Lander. The long disputes and wars that raged between Yorkists and Lancastrians--struggles that denied both noble houses the kingdom and laid open the path to Tudor hegemony are described against a socio-economic and legal-administrative background of new dimensions.
