9780073385501: Medieval Europe: A Short History

"Medieval Europe" introduces today's students to the medieval roots of our own society. In an accessible and engaging narrative, it tells how the peoples of medieval Europe 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.

Product Description:

Marked by C. Warren Hollister's clear historical vision and engaging teaching style, this classic text has been judiciously revised by Judith Bennett; the tenth edition includes greater coverage of Byzantium and Islam, a revised map program, a new essay program on medieval myths, and more. In his preface to the eighth edition, Professor Hollister wrote of his realization, while in college, that our world today "is a product of the medieval past." Medieval Europe introduces today's students to the medieval roots of our own society.

From the Publisher:

NEW! More balanced coverage throughout the text due to the additional coverage of women's history, social and cultural history, and the history of the Late Middle Ages.
NEW! This edition's Chapter 7, now titled Division, Invasion, and Reorganization, combines coverage of chapters Seven and Eight of the previous edition.
NEW! A much-expanded Chapter 11 including a discussion of political theory andincreased coverage of intellectual trends.
NEW! A reorganization of the presentation of the Investiture Controversy.
NEW! Chapter 14, Famine Plague, and Recovery, was added to fill out coverage of the Later Middle Ages.
NEW! Glossary included which helps students with new or challenging terminology. Terms found in the glossary are introduced in boldface in the text.
NEW! More dates are noted than before. As each monarch, pope, or ruler is introduced, the dates of rulership are given. The lifespan dates are provided for many other important figures discussed in the text.
NEW! More that twenty timelines were created to replace the chronological charts found in previous editions.
NEW! Bibliographies have been placed at the end of each chapter.
NEW! Biographical sketches, a wonderful innovation of recent editions of Medieval Europe: A Short History, have been expanded so that each chapter contains one.
NEW! Citations have been provided for quotations new to this edition.
NEW! Coverage of Byzantium and Islam is still largely confined to Chapters 3 and 5, but is now extended to 1500.
