Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Covering the period from the fall of the Roman Empire through to the beginnings of the Renaissance, this is an indispensable volume which brings the complex and colourful history of the Middle Ages to life.

Key features:

* geographical coverage extends to the broadest definition of Europe from the Atlantic coast to the Russian steppes

* each map approaches a separate issue or series of events in Medieval history, whilst a commentary locates it in its broader context

* as a body, the maps provide a vivid representation of the development of nations, peoples and social structures.

With over 140 maps, expert commentaries and an extensive bibliography, this is the essential reference for those who are striving to understand the fundamental issues of this period.

Book News Annotation:

Presents some 140 maps relating to various aspects of medieval European history, politics, religion, culture, society and economy. Each map is accompanied by an explanatory text. These texts, which are written by 35 contributors from universities in the UK and Seville, tend to range from half a page to two pages in length. MacKay (medieval history, U. of Edinburgh) includes a series of short bibliographies on some 90 topics.
