My new article in the Canadian Encyclopedia is about Margaret MacMillan, professor emerita of history at the University of Toronto and international history at the University of Oxford. Her bestselling 2001 book, Paris 1919, examines the lasting impact of the Paris Peace Conference at the end of the First World War. She continues to write about the role of war and peacemaking on human society. Her recent books include The War That Ended Peace (2013), History’s People: Personalities and the Past (2015) and War: How Conflict Shaped Us (2020)
Later Plantagenet and the Wars of the Roses Consorts edited by Aidan Norrie, J.L. Laynesmith, Danna R. Messer, Elena Woodacre and myself is now available in hardcover and e-book from Palgrave Macmillan. The book includes new research and perspectives on all English royal consorts from Isabella of France, consort to Edward II to Anne Neville, consort to Richard III, covering nearly two hundred years of royal history in the 14th and 15th centuries.
