Medieval Europe: A Short History is justly renowned for its accessible, humane, and humorous style. It tells how the peoples of the medieval West built, understood, and changed their world. Never losing sight of the neighboring civilizations of Byzantium and Islam, it has its feet firmly planted in the medieval West, from whence it gives ample consideration to such subjects as women's lives, Jewish communities, ordinary people, and the experiences of Europeans in the often-neglected centuries of the Later Middle Ages.
New to the Eleventh Edition:
Streamlined early chapters allow students to delve more quickly into Europe after 500 C.E.
Updated and focused discussion of the political history of the Holy Roman Empire.
More images than ever before provide visual aids to enhance comprehension and enrich the main text.
A separate and consolidated treatment of the medieval papacy.
Chapters are enlivened by visual images, maps, and timelines that summarize key trends and highlight important issues.
Clear, straightforward, and carefully organized chapters aid students in a full and exciting exploration of medieval Europe.
Up-to-date scholarship, especially incorporating the history of women and Jews, gives this text the advantage of being complete and seamless.
Now complemented by a robust, open-access, regularly updated website, MedievalEuropeOnline.com, Medieval Europe: A Short History directly engages students outside the classroom.
