Difference in medieval France was not solely a marker for social exclusion, provoking feelings of disgust and disaffection, but it could also create solidarity and sympathy among groups. Contributors to this volume address inclusion and exclusion from a variety of perspectives, ranging from ethnic and linguistic difference in Charlemagne's court, to lewd sculpture in Béarn, to prostitution and destitution in Paris. Arranged thematically, the sections progress from the discussion of tolerance and intolerance, through the clearly defined notion of foreignness, to the complex study of stranger identity in the medieval period. As a whole the volume presents a fresh, intriguing perspective on questions of exclusion and belonging in the medieval world.

Review:

'It is a rare book where all contributions are equally strong, and this is an exceptionally cohesive collection that offers valuable insights into medieval social relations. Its many authors avoid the usual pitfalls of binary thinking that mark studies on representation, marginalization and alterity. An introduction by Justine Firnhaber-Baker and afterword by Barbara A. Hanawalt highlight the unity and meaning of these diverse contributions. Read together, these chapters bring to the forefront the richness and diversity of the population in Francia and medieval France.' Cultural and Social History 'The volume's particular strength lies in encouraging the reader to think about difference from the perspective of the excluded and from that of the excluders, as well as reflecting upon the reciprocity between the two... Altogether, this volume holds together very well and provides much food for thought.' English Historical Review 'The editors are to be congratulated on bringing together a group of interesting, original and carefully focused chapters, all of which are pertinent to the overall theme. This is not simply a volume of loosely related conference proceedings. The editors have taken care to frame the collection thematically, theoretically and temporally, in order to offer a significant contribution to the study of medieval France and, more broadly, to the study of 'otherness' and difference in past societies.' French History
