Reviews


"One of the most influential and controversial books of medieval history of the last 20 years ... The relevance of its argument today is uncanny." The Guardian

Praise for the first edition:

"A brilliant account of medieval Europe...it is a pleasure to read an account that is so obviously of importance for our own societies, yet is conceived in a full international context." Times Higher Education Supplement

"A fundamental work of historical sociology, as important in its way as the works of Georges Duby and Mark Bloch...a courageous and wide-ranging thesis." M. T. Clanchy, Times Literary Supplement
