Excellent book. Very detailed. Just a word. This is not for those who want a beginners guide.

This is a very learned study - primarily the province of serious history students and academics.
. The text was originally published in 1871 - so take that into account, if you're looking for the story to flow smoothly, and provide information you seek in a comfortable way. IT's NOT AN EASY READ..!
But, it's all there.......the information pours forth, together with the numerous references you expect within such a work.
I am sure it's probably worth a higher star rating, if you've studied European history at university - but I didn't..!

Even though this book was written over one hundred years ago it is still the best book on the topic. Packed with so much information. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the topic.

Exceptional Insight 3 Oct. 2013
By J. Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bryce was obviously an extremely well read author. He makes numerous references to original Latin sources to substantiate his views. Due to Bryce's lucid writing style, the reader gains a clear and concise overview of the subject without having to wade through those referred to texts.

Of Its Time 21 Feb. 2014
By robert witherwax - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are surprisingly few historical overviews of the HRE in English. This is definitely a good starting point: it was written in the late 19th century by a British jurist, so it shares many of the biases of its time and era, and has a legal bent (much ado about coronation oaths, the nature of the feudal bonds, etc.) But it covers the topic well - the life cycle of the HRE. For greater depth in one volume, as well as a German 20th century scholarly perspective, I recommend Friedrich Heer's book of the same title. For even greater depth, there are a number of works that focus on time segments, by such authors as Timothy Reuter, Heinrich Fichtenau, and Horst Fuhrmann, etc.

A Tome to be sure But what a Tome! 26 Jun. 2014
By Walter W. Olson, Ph.D, P.E. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Holy Roman Empire highlighted the fallacy of a confederation to be able to serve the best interests of of its constituents. Bryce's language is somewhat archaic now but his viewpoint of the Holy Roman Empire just a few decades after it's last official act still resonates. This is not an easy read but it is a worthwhile one. I do not profess to understand all of the Latin used. But there can be no doubt that the illegal granting of Charlemagne by Pope Leo of an a empire changed the world as it was known. Then we see the empire blunted by the Germanic Dukes, each trying to protect its resources while still needing a superior structure. Meanwhile the Pope is fighting for the supremacy of the church over secular affairs. We do not now believe as strongly in God as they did and the Pope had a strong influence in weakening the a Empire that Charlemagne had established. It seemed at times an Eire that nobody wanted but to rid it ultimately was not politically feasible. Finally, it died under the Habsburgs who unable to provide the leadership to overcome the feudal dukes. There are lessons for the future if our world leaders would take the time and the wisdom to reconsider the 1000 years of the Holy Roman Empire.
Uneven coverage 21 Feb. 2014
By James Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Two things that come to mind. The book was written over one hundred years ago and the English language and writing style has changed. So you sometimes have to ready a paragraph more than once to absorb what the author wrote. Secondly, the author spends pages upon pages covering the Thirty Years War and barely covers the end of the HRE.
