Overview

From the divine right of kings to the political philosophies of writers such as Machiavelli, the medieval city-states to the unification of Spain, Daniel Waley and Peter Denley focus on the growing power of the state to illuminate changing political ideas in Europe between the thirteenth and sixteenth centuries. Spanning the entire continent and beyond, and using contemporary voices wherever possible, the authors include substantial sections on economics, religion, and art, and how developments in these areas fed into and were influenced by the transformation of political thinking. The new edition takes the narrative beyond the confines of western Europe with chapters on East Central Europe and the teutonic knights, and the Portuguese expansion across the Atlantic.

The third edition of this classic introduction to the period includes even greater use of contemporary voices, full reading lists, and new chapters on East Central Europe and Portuguese exploration. Suitable as an introductory text for undergraduate courses in Medieval Studies and Medieval European History.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Above all he is guided by a central thread, which is the growth of power in the state and the reflection of this is the development of political ideas.' The Times Education Supplement (of the previous edition) 'The two new chapters dealing with east-central Europe and European expanion, coupled with the addition of several primary documents and extensive reading lists, combine to make this a valid textbook and useful introduction to the period' History "significant updating...gives a new lease of life to a valued old friend...the result deserves to hold its place amongst introductory books for the period" English Historical Review
