An almost accidental purchase - but a treasure,
This review is from: A History of Medieval Europe: From Constantine to Saint Louis (Paperback)
If you've ever wondered how we got the Europe that we have then this book will go a long way to help you understand.
Anyone that has marvelled at the richness of Roman society is left wondering: "so where did it go so wrong?". This book provides the answers and gives some quiet insights to the world of today.
The book is no dry academic text either. The author is clearly enthused by his topic and he is constantly introducing anecdotes to keep the reader interested and, often, amused.
A great book.
