Medieval Academy Reprints for Teaching #34: Feudalismby F. L. Ganshof
Synopses & Reviews
'Professor Ganshof's book answers the prayer of every teacher and student of medieval history for a lucid, concise and authoritative exposition of feudal institutions. Its author is one of the leading authorities in western Europe on Feudalism and its translator a leading English expert on the early Middle Ages. Professor Ganshof ... confined himself to those institutionalized relationships of lord and man, prevalent in western Europe from the ninth to the thirteenth century, which are commonly included in the narrower definition of Feudalism. The result is a summary of current doctrine which could scarcely be bettered.'
George Holmes, The Cambridge Review
A lucid, concise, and authoritative exposition of feudal institutions prevalent in western Europe from the ninth to the thirteen century. 'He has a complete mastery of his material, sure historical judgment, creative imagination, and a gift for clear and precise exposition. A subject that is often treated in rather abstract terms is here given reality and concreteness ...' - Sidney Painter, Speculum. A reprint of the 3rd edition published in 1964 by F.L. Ganshof.
