History

From the Back Cover

When Hugh Capet took the throne of France in 987, his kingdom was weak and insignificant, but from an inauspicious beginning he founded a dynasty that was to last over 300 years and came to dominate western Europe.

By 1100, France was already the hub of the universe to scholars and poets, to crusaders and the designers of churches, reforming churchmen and monks. Even though its kings were comparatively insignificant figures, 'la douce France' drew people like a magnet. Then, thanks to the conquests and reforms of King Philip Augustus, by 1250 France had become a dominant force in political and economic terms as well, producing a saint-king, Louis IX, and in Philip IV a ruler so powerful that he could dictate to popes and emperors.

Capetian France is an authoritative overview of the country's development from 987 to 1328. This carefully updated second edition contains a glossary, maps and family trees, and retains the original book's popular balance between a compelling narrative and a fascinating examination of the period's main themes.

ELIZABETH HALLAM has taught at the universities of London and Reading, and is Director of Public Services at the Public Record Office.

This books provides a well written history of Capetian France, covering the monarchs as well as society, the economy and the monarch's relations with the Church. The authors provide many maps and genealogical tables, numerous chapter endnotes and an extensive bibliography. I highly recommend this book for lovers of medieval history!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Brian Wayne Wells on October 12, 2014
Format: Paperback
Ordinarily, I prefer history books written in the the interdisciplinary social method of recording history as opposed to books written in the "great man" method of writing history. Even when this book came out in 1980, the authors were admitting that the book was a political history written as a study of individuals within society. The authors have stated that this is a method of writing that is a reaction to the modern trend toward the interdisciplinary social history method of writing history.

Much as I prefer the trend toward the interdisciplinary social history, I found this book to be an exiciting read. The author's enthusiam for the topic is what captures the reader. Because the "Total History" approach is the preferred modern trend, and the trend preferred by me, the method can be hard to write and can be hard to read, this particular return to the traditional method of writing relying on individuals does result in a very satisfying read.

One of the few English language book-length works on early French history, this must count as definitive.
