From the end of the Roman Empire and the development of the Early Church in the fifth century, to Black Death and The Hundred Years War in the fourteenth century, Slocum's authentic chronological narrative integrates a lucid and thorough discussion of politics, warfare, dynastic events, and the rise of the Church. Providing a narrative of the events and people of the time, Slocum pays special attention to socio-cultural history and medieval art and architecture. By interweaving primary sources into the narrative, A HISTORY OF MEDIEVAL CIVILIZATION brings medieval history to life through the voices of contemporary men and women of the time.

Kay Slocum is professor of history and Gerhold Professor of Humanities at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, where she specializes in Gothic period and has a particular interest in medieval music. A winner of two university-wide teaching awards, Professor Slocum has also written numerous articles. Her most recent publication, a study of the liturgies composed for Thomas Becket, is forthcoming with the University of Toronto Press.Review:
I use Hollister (note from CB: Hollister has been the market-leader for 25 years). Slocum's ability to deconstruct pieces of art and architecture from a variety of perspectives (social, cultural, political, religious, and economic added significantly to the overall feel of the text and, I think, actually makes Slocum's a better text.
Slocum does not gloss over or marginalize non-Western societies or peoples. The text I have recently used devotes little attention to Islam and Muslins in Medieval Europe...which caused me to use additional material from other sources to make up for the imbalance.
The text has a achieved an excellent level of intermixture of political and socio-cultural history...The sections on women are especially poignant and are a welcome addition...I would certainly adopt this text.
