Overview

Rosenwein (history, Loyola U., Chicago) has succeeded in writing a history of the Middle Ages that presents Byzantium and Islam alongside Western Christendom with equal emphasis, developing the relationships between them throughout the text in a way students will find familiar to their own time. Though political events are described, much attention is given to developments in art and culture, religion and thought, and the realities of everyday life, making this an unusually engaging history for the beginning undergraduate. The volume is full of good quality color illustrations and many fine maps. The second edition contains corrections to the first, published in 2002. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
