21 Barber, Richard Henry Plantagenet 1133-1189.
Barnes and Noble 1993 Hardcover in DJ Good Good Octavo 
278 pp "Henry II is the most imposing figure among the medieval kings of England. His fiefs and domains extended from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, and his court was frequented by the greatest thinkers and men of letters of his time, besides ambassadors from all over Europe. This readable and accessible biography offers both a study of his character, and an estimate of his work as a ruler, work which is in a sense the history of his life, since it occupied his entire energies from his accession at the age of twenty-one to his death thirty-five years later."

"In this startling reconsideration of the Victorians and their worlds, the author sheds light into the dark corners of an age notorious for its smug prudery and repressive official consciousness, exposing a bizarre demimonde where violence and brutality reigned at the heart of the burgeoning British Empire. A dark world mirrored not only in the considerable newspaper coverage of the most shocking criminal cases of the day, but in the so-called "Sensation" novels which flourished during the 1850s and 1860s as well." 10.00
