Four principles guide the selection of materials. First, entire documents are included wherever possible, not snippets. Second, texts are grouped to form dossiers in which the individual documents relate to one another, reflecting the practice of historians themselves. Third, most of the documents chosen have been the subject of significant scholarship. And fourth, raw material for many types of historical investigations is provided: the documents are equally useful to the political historian, the social historian, the cultural historian or the historian of mentalities.



The third edition includes an updated Preface, more extensive material from Gregory of Tours, and a new section, "The Iberian Peninsula," containing material that deals with Jews, Muslims and Heretics. The text has also been newly typeset, making the book more readable, and in response to suggestions concerning the weight of the book, lighter paper is being used. The result is a book that is overall more user friendly.



Please note: This edition is also available in a two-volume format, dividing the text chronologically:


Volume I: The Early Middle Ages

Volume II: The Later Middle Ages

Review:

Finally, a reader that doesn't condescend to its audience. Giving students a generous selection of unedited texts allows them to appreciate the riches of medieval texts. A treasure house!

(John Shinners, Saint Mary's College)

Outstanding coverage and depth.

(Richard C. Hoffman, York University)

An outstanding, eclectic collection of documents.

(David Routt, Virginia Commonwealth University)
