  • The Growth of the Medieval Cityby David M Nicholas

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 77.95

    The first part of David Nicholas's massive two-volume study of the medieval city, this book is a major achievement in its own right.

In it, Professor Nicholas traces the slow regeneration of urban life... more...

  • The Later Medieval Cityby David M Nicholas

    The Later Medieval City, 1300-1500, the second part of David Nicholas's ambitious two-volume study of cities and city life in the Middle Ages, fully lives up to its splendid precursor, The Growth of the Medieval City . (Like that volume it is fully self-sufficient, though many readers will want to use the two as a continuum.) This book covers a much... more...

    Conflict between England and France was a fact of life for centuries, but few realize that this conflict originated with the Vikings and their settlement of what would become Normandy.

  • Communities of Violenceby David Nirenberg

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 37.50

    In the wake of modern genocide, we tend to think of violence against minorities as a sign of intolerance, or, even worse, a prelude to extermination. Violence in the Middle Ages, however, functioned differently, according to David Nirenberg. In this provocative book, he focuses on specific attacks against minorities in fourteenth-century France and... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 77.95

    Who, exactly, was responsible for the preservation of knowledge about the past? How did men and women preserve their recollections and pass them on to the next generation?

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 39.95

    This lively work describes how the lives of ordinary people in the Middle Ages were transformed by a series of crises, whilst also showing how cultural assumptions, including a belief in the apocalypse, gave people an ability to face up positively to these problems.
