Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Insightful and firmly grounded in the sources, it is not simply another 'survey' of late Saxon England. Rather, it is an interpretation of the political and social history of the period, a reasoned explanation of the emergence of the English nation, the growth of effective kingship in early England, and the essential continuity of political and social structures between the Anglo-Saxon and the medieval periods.

"The great virtue of the work is its refusal to see late Old English history as the prelude to the Norman Conquest. This view of the past seen in its own terms makes for a vivid picture of a rich and varied society."—History
