Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A synoptic account of events in Europe from the Christianization of the Roman Empire to the solid foundations of medieval institutions, recounting the demise of the empire, immigrations and raids from the north and east (from Huns to Vikings) the rise of Islam, and the Carolingian era. An excellent textbook for a beginning or survey course for undergraduates. The six-volume series (two still to come) covers A.D. 300 through the 19th century. Annotation c.
