BOOK EXCERPT:

" A Short History of the Middle Ages Volume II is an affordable, succinct narrative overview of medieval history from c.900 to c.1500. Each chapter covers a ""slice of time"" and integrates culture, politics, art, economics, and social issues. Rosenwein places Europe in the context of the Islamic world and the Byzantine, Mongol, and Ottoman empires. The histories of women, Jews, and heretics are all important parts of this story. With 38 plates, most in color, Volume II''s illustrations serve as an introduction to the history of medieval art and architecture, while its 26 maps'many in color'provide a wordless panorama of political changes over time. Genealogies and lists of popes and other rulers are provided so that the book may serve as a handy reference tool. New to the second edition are the lists of Key Events indicating major dates in each chapter. Revisions and expansions have been made throughout. The original one-volume format of A Short History of the Middle Ages, covering medieval history from c.300 to c.1500, remains available. Comments: ""A Short History of the Middle Ages, second edition is the most beautifully presented textbook I have seen in nearly twenty years of university teaching. The additions to the second edition, especially the timelines at the ends of the chapters, make this edition far superior to the first."" - Gary Miller, Southern Oregon University ""Rosenwein gives a concise, detailed, and up-to-date survey of medieval history. She is masterful in integrating closely the book''s many images, maps, and genealogies into her argument. Her treatment is concise, without ever being superficial. A Short History of the Middle Ages is by far the best book of its kind."" - Anders Winroth, Yale University ""This beautifully written, exquisitely illustrated Short History is an ideal introduction to the Middle Ages. Rosenwein''s feat of synthesizing the strongest new scholarship in the field while writing for the general reader is unparalleled. Because it is comprehensive and clearly detailed, I find this book as useful to students of literature, art history, and cultural studies as it is to historians."" - Bonnie Wheeler, Southern Methodist University Key Features: Full color throughout with 38 plates and 26 maps Genealogical tables, lists of popes and key dates Integration of art into the history of the period Inclusion of Byzantine and Islamic worlds Overhead transparencies of maps and figures available Access to a searchable website Special Combined Price: Please note that a special discount price of CDN & US $65.00 is available when this book is shrinkwrapped with Reading the Middle Ages, Volume II: From c.900 to c.1500, edited by Barbara H.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This classic text outlines the development of the Papacy as an institution in the Middle Ages. With profound knowledge, insight and sophistication, Walter Ullmann traces the course of papal history from the late Roman Empire to its eventual decline in the Renaissance. The focus of this survey is on the institution and the idea of papacy rather than individual figures, recognizing the shaping power of the popes' roles that made them outstanding personalities. The transpersonal idea, Ullmann argues, sprang from Christianity itself and led to the Papacy as an institution sui generis.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Italy: A Short History is a concise but comprehensive account of Italian history from the Ice Age to the present day. It is intended for both students of Italian history and culture and the general reader, whether tourist, business-person or traveller, with an interest in Italian affairs. Harry Hearder places the main political developments in Italian history in their economic and social context, and shows how these related to the great moments of artistic and cultural endeavour. Amongst key events, he analyses the growth and decline of the Roman Empire, the remarkable cultural achievements of the Renaissance, Italian unification and the contradictions of the fascist dictatorship of Mussolini. Jonathan Morris brings the work up to the present day with an authoritative but colourful history of the corruption scandals that brought down the post-war Italian political system in the 1990s and the new political forces that have emerged in its place.
