Is the Magna Carta better than the US Constitution? Was it a power grab by English noblemen, or is it a rights of man declaration penned by Robin Hood?
The answers may surprise you as author and historian Irene Radford picks apart the clauses and explains them in context to the history surrounding this amazing document. Magna Carta, a true turning point in the history of democracy.
Issued on June 15, 1215, the Magna Carter dictated that the King of England's will could no longer be enforced arbitrarily and granted unprecedented rights to (some of) the people of England. In Magna Bloody Carta Irene Radford investigates the origin and context of this historic document. Who authored it? And why? These are all questions Radford asks. Katrina Kalin gives a great performance of this informational audiobook. Her clear speaking voice and smooth delivery present Radford's research and analysis with uncommon ease.
