Great book, but the 10th edition is much cheaper and has almost exactly the same content17 July 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
After I bought this edition, I learned I could have gotten the 10th edition for a fraction of the cost and it contained the exact same words. The page numbers are slightly different, but the content is the same. If you are taking a medieval history class and they require you have the 11th edition, don't waste your money, the 10th edition is word for word for the vast majority of the book. I compared them side by side and it looks like they just copied and pasted the words for most of it. They may have added a few maps and pictures to the 11th edition, but save your money and get the older one trust me.

Good read, I've read other Medieval Europe books that are disappointingly dry, this one isnt. Very informative.27 March 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Assigned for a Medieval Europe class. Captures all the major themes/tensions, and its a good summary of Europe in the Middle Ages. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in reading about Medieval Europe. Naturally there are plenty of pieces which could use more elaboration or more detail, but this book does it all in about 300 pages.

Had to buy it for school but enjoy reading it.21 March 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
I had to buy this for a class but I actually enjoy reading it. It is not dry and boring but interesting and paints clear picture of life in high middle ages.
