This study 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.
