Robert Stansfield, Honorary Research Associate in the Department of History, has published a book focussing on south-western England during the Wars of the Roses. Political Elites in South-West England, 1450-1500: Politics, Governance, and the Wars of the Roses (The Edwin Mellen Press, Lampeter, 2009) examines the crown's approach to government in South-West England during the later fifteenth century: it investigates Edward IV's policy towards the English regions, and explores the feasibility of a regional approach by examining the politics, government, and ruling elites of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, and Somerset from 1450 to 1500.
