A Short History of the Middle Ages (2nd edition)

by Barbara H. Rosenwein

Rosenwein (history, Loyola U., Chicago) has succeeded in writing a history of the Middle Ages that presents Byzantium and Islam alongside Western Christendom with equal emphasis, developing the relationships between them throughout the text in a way students will find familiar to their own time.
