Richard IIIBook - 2000
The remit of this book is to investigate whether Richard III was a good guy or a bad guy, whether he was a wicked murderer or merely a victim of bad public opinion and propaganda. Michael Hicks uses contemporary sources to diclose Richard's life, his reputation and the events that shaped it. Although public opinion has now changed to being in support of Richard, Hicks discusses how Richard acquired such a bad reputation and strips away the propaganda of the centuries to rescue Richard from his critics and supporters alike'.
