William the Conqueror by David Bates ( Book )
14 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"William the Conqueror was a formidable personality, whose political imagination and ruthless will were the driving force of the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. In this biography, David Bates describes the full scope of William's achievements in both Normandy and England, setting them firmly in the context of Europe in an age of change and turmoil." "William showed himself an outstanding soldier and an extremely effective ruler who combined great fortitude with an unbending insistence on his own authority. He was also cruel, greedy and intolerant - a man who pitilessly stamped out opposition and shamelessly manipulated facts to justify dubious enterprises."--Jacket

The day Carl Sandburg died ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An exploration into the life and work of the iconic American, Carl Sandburg. From an impoverished youth on the prairie of Illinois to the halls of Congress and international notoriety, it was a tale of perseverance and success. During his lifetime he was revered, becoming one of the most successful writers of the 20th century, but when he died in 1967, his legacy suffered an unusual and inexplicably fast decline. His work was disparaged and his remarkable life all but forgotten

Domesday book ( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Domesday Book is the record of the great survey of England completed in 1086, executed for William I of England (aka William the Conqueror). One of the main purposes of the survey was to determine who held what and what taxes had been liable under Edward the Confessor; the judgment of the Domesday assessors was final -- whatever the book said about who held the material wealth or what it was worth, was the law, and there was no appeal. It was written in Latin, although there were some vernacular words inserted for native terms with no previous Latin equivalent, and the text was highly abbreviated. Certain scholars on common law property rights regard the Domesday Book as the first written account of "who owns what" in the history of common law. Thus, this book might represent the birth of the modern concept of property rights in The West. This book challenges the orthodox views of William I's great census of 1086, to give an intriguing story of the origins of England's greatest historical record, as well as new insights into its contents
East Anglia and its North Sea world in the Middle Ages ( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"East Anglia was a distinctive English region during the Middle Ages, but it was one that owed much of its character and identity to its place in a much wider "North Sea World" that stretched from the English Channel to Iceland, the Baltic and beyond. Relations between East Anglia and its maritime neighbours have for the most part been peaceful, involving migration and commercial, artistic, architectural and religious exchanges, but have also at times been characterised by violence and contestation. All these elements have played a significant role in processes of historical change that have shaped the history both of East Anglia and its North Sea world. This collection of essays discusses East Anglia in the context of this maritime framework and explores the extent to which there was a distinctive community bound together by the shared frontier of the North Sea during the Middle Ages"--Back cover
