Editorial Reviews


'Horst Fuhrmann gives us 150 stormy years in 180 pages. his narrative is economical and lucid, though he opens with a relatively leisurely chapter on space, time and man in the Middle Ages. This masterly survey of 'medical anthropology', with its evocation of the harsh environment and alien thought-world of the period, is followed by a deft sketch of the transformation of Western Europe into something recognizably 'modern' by the year 1200.' The Times Literary Supplement

'This concise, vigorous, well-translated delineation of a short span, only a century and a half, of germany's medieval experience has the great merit of setting the events within the European context. The author succeeds in showing that Germany was not behind hand in the economic, cultural and religious advances usually attributed to french and italian society as pioneers in that age ... The book is published in hardcover and paperback, and will establish itself, by its great verve and readability, as the standard short sccount in English for some years.' History

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is interesting, but it just skims through the time period giving basic story lines throughout. Events simply happen without any build-up, though the consequences are generally explored in-depth.
