The Possible Fates of Edward V and Richard of York
Author: Gerald Prenderghast
The fate of Richard III's two nephews, Edward V and Richard of York, who disappeared after his coronation in 1483, has remained controversial centuries after Thomas More's history and Shakespeare's play laid the blame on their conniving uncle. Some later writers, unconvinced of the king's guilt, have tried (with little success) to portray him as an innocent victim of Tudor propaganda, pointing instead to a number of unlikely culprits, including Henry Tudor and the Duke of Buckingham. This book sifts through the available evidence about the fate of the two boys. The author examines the facts, discusses who may or may not have had information and offers a reasoned solution to the question, What really happened to the two princes?

First edition of this classic text to be illustrated. Richard III and the fate of the Princes is a subject of perennial interest. The 'Princes in the Tower' is a cause célèbre of English history. Did Richard III murder his two nephews Edward V and Prince Richard to usurp the throne of England? Shakespeare certainly thought so and together with later Tudor propagandists - keen to legitimize their new royal dynasty - Richard became a hunchback, crippled by his evil deeds. Drawing on contemporary documents and the latest historical research Audrey Williamson reveals the shocking conspiracy to conceal the truth.

Princess Mononoke (1997) is one of anime's most important films. Hayao Miyazaki's epic fantasy broke domestic box office records when it came out in Japan, keeping pace with the success of Hollywood films like Titanic (1997). Princess Mononoke was also the first of Studio Ghibli's films to be distributed outside Japan as part of a new deal with Disney subsidiary Buena Vista International. Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the release of the film, Rayna Denison curates this new collection to critically reflect on Princess Mononoke's significance within and beyond Japanese culture. The collection investigates the production, and re-production, processes involved in the making of Princess Mononoke into a global phenomenon and reevaluates the film's significance within a range of global markets, animation techniques, and cultures. In revisiting this undeniably important film, the collection sheds light on the tensions within anime and the cultural and social issues that Princess Mononoke explores, from environmental protection to globalization to the representation of marginalized groups. In this remarkable new collection, Princess Mononoke is examined as a key player during a major turning point in Japanese animation history.
