This book provides the first rounded account of the new and highly influential ruling elite of England in the century after the Norman conquest of 1066, in which the old English aristocracy was swept aside. It focuses on four main themes: land (the transfer of land to the aristocracy, and the organization of the great estates), power (the nature of power and its vitality), politics (the aims and strategies of the nobles), and society (kinship, the role of women, and piety).

Review:

"Green expertly and gracefully synthesizes the results of more than three generations of copious and often contentious scholarship on the politics, economy, and society of the lay aristorcracy of England in the first century after the Norman conquest....Highly recommended." -- Choice

"Green's book will not merely be of interest to historians whose research interests lie in the Anglo-Norman period of English history; it may very well also become a source of concern to them, for its comprehensive analysis of much of the scholarly work of the last few decades may well obviate the necessity to consult some of these earlier writings. University librarians wise enough to purchase the volume for their collections,...will perform an invaluable service to their patrons." Cynthia Neville, Canadian Jrnl of History

"Students and professors alike will find much to think about in Judith Green's synthesis of recent scholarship and her own research on aristocratic power and society in England during the century after the Norman Conquest." Thomas K. Keefe, Speculum

"This substantial, learned book is both an ambitious synthesis and a research monograph about the century-long complex process of adaptation that followed the settlement of the foreign aristocracy in England. The book is rich in ideas, cautious in argument, and well-written..." Joseph H. Lynch, Journal of Interdisciplinary History

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book provides the first rounded account of the new ruling elite of England in the century after 1066. It deals with the revolution in landholding by which the old English aristocracy was swept aside, and the nature of aristocratic power, as demonstrated by the control of castles and knights, and lordship over men and land. The book stresses the vitality of aristocratic power throughout the period, particularly during the civil war under King Stephen. The part played by kinship and family in building up and extending influence are emphasised, and a separate chapter is devoted to the crucial role played by women in the transmission of land. The role of aristocratic benefactors in the wave of generosity which brought great wealth to the church is also examined and, finally, the extent to which the newcomers identified themselves with the country they had conquered.
