Medieval Europe: A Short History / Edition 11

For more than three decades, C. Warren Hollister nurtured this classic text of medieval European history. The text was profoundly marked by his clear historical vision and engaging teaching style. Now Judith Bennett has updated this classic book while striving to lose neither Dr. Hollister's vision nor style. In his preface to the eighth edition, Professor Hollister wrote of his fateful realization, while in college, that our world today "is a product of the medieval past." The ninth edition of Medieval Europe: A Short History seeks to introduce today's students to the medieval roots of our own society. Building on the solid foundation created by Dr. Hollister, new co-author Judith Bennett brings expanded coverage of women's history, social and cultural history, the role of the common man and woman of the Middle Ages, and the history of the Late Middle Ages to this revision.
