    Is the reference at the end of this paragraph (look for the [1]) the person's view who wrote this book, or only the person he is referencing? I am confused because he is not stating an entire quote, but he referenced this, so is it also his view?

    The argument that ******* feudalism was the fundamental cause
    of the Wars of the Roses is second only to dynastic legitimacy
    in antiquity. Its development is particularly associated with
    Charles Plummer and William Denton in the late-nineteenth
    century. In the mid-fifteenth century, the argument ran, the
    government of England was paralysed by the overgrown power
    and insubordination of the nobles, especially overmighty subjects
    who were able to pursue their own private quarrels without let
    or hindrance. The origin of this evil was supposed to lie in the
    development of ******* feudalism in the reign of Edward III.
    After 1399 the government was 'controlled, if not directed', by
    half a dozen of these mighty peers. The wars resulted from the
    collapse of central control and were in effect a repetition on a
    large scale of those private wars which distracted almost every
    country.[1]
