Publisher's Summary

In this indispensable volume, one of America's ranking scholars combines a life's work of research and teaching with the art of lively narration. Both authoritative and beautifully told, The Middle Ages is the full story of the thousand years between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance - a time that saw the rise of kings and emperors, the flowering of knighthood, the development of Europe, the increasing power of the Catholic Church, and the advent of the middle class.

Interesting but not exciting.

Read as one long paragraph. The times I was hoping the author would go into detail, I was left with more questions. Best use of this book is to take notes and do further research to answer the questions you have.

What did you love best about The Middle Ages?

An excellent resource covering the subject matter in detail and giving great insight. Well complimented by the narrator.

What other book might you compare The Middle Ages to and why?

A History of Western Civilisation, while this book covers a broader topic it compares well to this book and seems to provide similar insights to life in the Medieval-period.
