This book is the first in English in more than half a century to survey the history of a great Mediterranean federation whose homelands were Catalonia and Aragon. Based on recent research, it seeks to convey a sense of the energy, drama, and colour of a creative and expansionist people between the twelfth and the fifteenth century. T.N. Bisson lays due stress on individual achievement and personality, while at the same time providing a balanced survey of political and dynastic evolution, institutional foundations, economic and cultural matters, and the socio-economic weakness which led eventually to a crisis in the federated realms in the late Middle Ages.

Review:

`Professor Bisson has multiplied his claims upon our gratitude by presenting us with The Medieval Crown of Aragon ... a masterly synthesis of recent research which deserves a warm welcome.' English Historical Review

`An excellent, succinct and readable history of the Medieval Crown of Aragon which takes on board all recent research, particularly of Catalan scholars.' British Bulletin of Publications on Latin America, The Caribbean, Portugal and Spain

`will be welcome by all interested in the history of medieval Spain ... successful both as an introductory survey ans as an essay of synthesis' American Historical Review

`perceptive and scholarly ... a most welcome addition to the rather scanty historical literature in English on medieval Spain' Journal of Medieval History

`We need an introductory history of the Crown of Aragon and Professor Bisson is a good choice to write it for us.' History

`excellent and useful survey ... work which, with a long and intelligently descriptive bibliography at the end, will serve as an introduction to its complex and difficult subject for many years to come.' David J. Wasserstein, Mediterranean Historical Review

Book Description OUP Oxford. Paperback. Condition: New. 264 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.5in. x 0.8in.This book--the first study of its kind in English in more than fifty years--surveys the history of the medieval Crown of Aragon from its early origins in counties of the eastern Pyrenees. Reviewing the most recent research into the well-preserved archives of the region, Bisson recreates a sense of the energy, drama, and color of these creative and expansionist people between the 12th and 15th centuries. Throughout, the book duly stresses individual achievement and personality while at the same time providing a balanced overview of political and dynastic evolution, institutional foundations, economic and cultural affairs, and the socio-economic weaknesses that eventually led to a crisis in the federated realms in the late Middle Ages. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780198202363
