Grade 7–10—Nardo does a good job of defining the social hierarchy that represented the European medieval world. At the uppermost, kings and popes battled it out for top position. At the bottom, serfs toiled hopelessly, and no women had real rights. Indeed, one husband bragged to his buddies after having kicked his wife in the face, breaking her nose. Knights and the clergy made up much of the rest of society. While information on knights is abundant elsewhere, material on the church and its minions is not quite as ubiquitous. Clerical divisions are fully clarified here. As explained, at the end of the Middle Ages, merchants and scholars began to rise in importance. The writing is compelling and full-color, contemporary pictures complement the text. This comprehensive, well-organized, and worthy effort is especially useful for reports.—Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI
