    Richard IIIBy David HipshonPublished by Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group: New York & London. 2011.I’ve read a number of books about various medieval bad boys, men with names like Ivan the Terrible and Vlad Ţepes come to mind. The biographies and histories of these men have, for the most part, have presented their material in non-judgmental ways that typically put matters within context.

    Hipshon does a good job dryly covering the facts available in the case of Richard III and attempting to strike an objective tone of inquiry.

    For specialists in medieval English history, this will be fascinating. For those of us with more general interest, less so: I abandoned it after 56 pages, which I think is fair.
