Introduction to Medieval Europe 300-1500

Clearly written in a lively style by two prominent authors in the field, this translation of a comprehensive textbook is an excellent survey history of the Middle Ages.

Wim Blockmans is Professor of Medieval History at the University of Leiden and is Rector of the Netherlands Institute of Advanced Study in Humanities and Social Sciences.

Peter Hoppenbrouwers is Professor of Medieval History at the University of Amsterdam.

'An inspiring and magisterial survey of twelve centuries of Medieval History. Written with verve and flair but never patronizing or too simplifying, it provides an up-to-date synthesis of recent scholarship on the Middle Ages by two outstanding Dutch medievalists.' - Elizabeth van Houts, Emmanuel College, Cambridge University, UK 'I believe this is the best medieval history textbook I have read and I will enjoy using it on my medieval history courses.' - William H. TeBrake, University of Maine, USA Reviews of the Dutch edition 'When it comes to politics, economics and society, Blockmans and Hoppenbrouwers have succeeded in a compelling way to evoke recognition: here are our ancestors, the giants on whose shoulders we stand.' - NRC Handelsblad 'The authors show medieval society in all its aspects. Its broad approach is one of the book's great merits.' - De Volkskrant 'The first thing to note about this book is its accessibility. The style in which it is written enables a wide audience to readily assimilate the information in the light of the broader themes accross the period... This is all achieved within a clear interpretive framework that makes use of the latest ideas and research. To support the text there are over a hundred photographs, maps, tables and engravings which the reader will find invaluable... This is a thoroughly professional, readable and very enjoyable book that does not disappoint. It is meticulously researched and expertly delivered... In many respects it surpasses those written by my old favourites Davis and Koenigsberger, not least in its style and more modern approach. I would highly recommend this book to all with even the remotest of interests in this period. - Leslie J M Obre, SATH: Teaching History Review 'This splendid textbook [is] ... a good source of recent bibliography' - International Review of Biblical Studies, Germany 'This is an interesting and well written synthesis which introduces the reader to recent scholarship and provides a clear, but not simplistic, narrative and anlysis...This, and the lucid interpretative framework in which the chronological and descriptive elements are anchored, make Introduction to Medieval Europe a particularly useful teaching tool'. - International Medieval Bibliography
