Editorial Reviews

D.C. Baxter
Zmora's short, stimulating essay in Routledge's "Historical Connections" series, while echoing some of Dewald's conclusions, is a tightly argued interpretation of the interrelationship of the evolution of the modern state, the monarchy, and the aristocracy. Briefly, the expensive and brutally competitive European state system shaped the structure of the nobility, assimilating them and allowing a means of exercising power and gaining wealth. Zmora carefully examines the chief states of western Europe, including the exceptional English situation. Based largely on European scholarship, this title is recommended for upper division students and above.
Booknews
Zmore, who is not identified, continues the series of synthetic histories by looking at an experience that, though varied across times and places, was shared by all the nobilities of Western Europe: the transformation of the medieval kingdoms into states. He argues that by the end of the period he discusses nobility was a judicial entity; and that it was part of a social order based on privilege, differential prestige, and legalized inequality.
