Michael Bloch gives a new twist to the oft-told story of King Edward’s short reign.Drawing on a decade-long study of the King’s personality, and on privileged access to his papers, he sees the King’s abdication partly as the result of a plot to get rid of him by men who mistrusted his modernity and popular touch, but also explainable by the fact that he did not really want to be king or fight for his throne.
