MAGNA CARTA by Dan Jones
NON-FICTION
Released: Oct. 20, 2015

"This is politics-and-great-men history documented by medieval archives and unreliable contemporary chroniclers, but Jones has done his homework to produce an insightful, satisfying history of a beloved, if usually unread, icon of freedom."
