Medieval Europe: A Short History. Register a free business account. Review The medieval world comes alive in this outstanding volume that engages students with a compelling historical narrative.
Rosenwein's expert vision integrates exquisite illustrations and beautiful maps into a text that ably meets the instructor's academic demands. Well-researched and wide-ranging coverage of religious, cultural, regional, political, and social developments explode myths of a closed and colorless medieval world. A Short History of the Middle Ages is a real gem that blends utter readability with an impressive mastery of scholarship that will encourage further study. Janice Liedl, Laurentian University The latest edition of A Short History of the Middle Ages has everything you want in a medieval survey text: the narrative is pithy, the maps are plentiful, and visual culture is fully integrated into the historical context with numerous, beautiful reproductions.
Simplified genealogies are presented alongside the discussion of dynasties, as well as in the appendix, and there are useful summaries of key events at the end of each chapter. It is a rare gem of a book that is sure to satisfy the needs and please the minds of students and instructors.
Barbara E. Logan, University of Wyoming A Short History of the Middle Ages fully embraces the eastern portions of the European continent and the wider context of the Byzantine and Muslim Mediterranean worlds, making Rosenwein's dynamic account of the fitful emergence of medieval Europe the best on the market. The wonderfully rendered illustrations are deployed as learning tools and are intimately integrated into the book's smart yet accessible narrative.
Timelines, maps, genealogies, and the accompanying website enhance learning and teaching. John J. Contreni, Purdue University. Don't have a Kindle? Customer reviews. How does Amazon calculate star ratings?

Please try again later. So it's Verified Purchase. The amazon book doesn't have page numbers! So it's really difficult to navigate especially when you are assigned certain page numbers to read for school. I suggest getting the physical copy. Good read. Came fast and in great condition, not to mention the book itself is well written and a fantastic source!
My knowledge of history isn't the greatest but this book made it quite easy to learn a lot. It was easy to follow along and quite honestly better than any course or any other book out there. This was a text book for a Medieval Europe course. It was accompanied by Rosenwein's Reading the Middle Ages as well. Both proved to give me a good general picture of the time period and Rosenwein delivers a balanced approach to allow the reader to see what the time period really showcased.
This time period was anything but dark and sleepy and the tumultuous events are what made the Renaissance possible. Wrong book!! A pleasure to read. I didn't want to put it down. The arrangement of the material was helpful to see the connections between events and movements.
I highly recommend it. My 2-star review is comprised of one star for the lack of cohesion and structure of its content. It reads as if random paragraphs were haphazardly ordered by chapter. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews.
Translate all reviews to English. My complain is not about the content of the book, but the state the book is in. Pages are just falling out of it while I'm reading. I'm handling the book with care, so I know it's not my fault. I don't know what to do about it, but I'm not happy with this situation. Thank you for your feedback.
