Review:

"This textbook offers an optimal combination of thoroughness, balance, clarity, and sophistication. It provides a well-rounded overview of the development of medieval civilization, but never lets readers forget the rich complexity of events, or the wide variety of motives and causal factors behind both the achievements and failures of Western Civilization."
