'Instructors seeking an alternative to the standard political and institutional narrative found in most medieval history texts will find the new edition of Blockmans and Hoppenbrouwers to be a superb choice. With its focus on social groups and cultural movements, the text is also written in a fluid style that will engage students. I look forward to using it in my next medieval history survey.'
Edward Tabri, University of Texas at Tyler
About the Author
Introduction to Medieval Europe 300–1500 provides a comprehensive survey of this complex and varied formative period of European history, covering themes as diverse as barbarian migrations, the impact of Christianisation, the formation of nations and states, the emergence of an expansionist commercial economy, the growth of cities, the Crusades, the effects of plague, and the intellectual and cultural life of the Middle Ages. The book explores the driving forces behind the formation of medieval society and the directions in which it developed and changed. In doing this, the authors cover a wide geographic expanse, including Western interactions with the Byzantine Empire and the Islamic World.
This third edition contains a wealth of new features within the book and on the companion website that help to bring this fascinating era to life, including:
In the book:
• A number of new maps and images to further understanding of the period
• Clear signposting and extended discussions of key topics such as feudalism and gender
• Expanded geographic coverage into Eastern Europe and the Middle East
On the companion website:
• An interactive map, which will allow students to engage with the geographical framework of medieval Europe and beyond
• An extended bibliography
• New chapter resources, suggested medieval films and novels to be assigned alongside each chapter.
The companion website is a free resource which also features, for instructors, assignable discussion questions and all of the images and maps in the book available to download, and for students, a comparative interactive timeline of the period and links to useful websites.
Clear and stimulating, the third edition of Introduction to Medieval Europe is the ideal companion to studying Europe in the Middle Ages at undergraduate level.

Top international reviews
The Islamic world is discussed relatively briefly and the description of the religions doctrine is very minimal and simplified relative to Christianity. Also the book tends to focus overwhelmingly on Western Europe, Eastern Europe is explored in less depth. Overall however the well flowing prose style and interesting exploration of Europe as it began to develop the early forms of modern European nation states today and grows to become a region that would influence world history from the 1500s onwards makes this a good informative read, for students on University courses covering the European Middle Ages and general history enthusiasts that would like transcend more popular history into something slightly more in depth and academic albeit very accessible.
