This clear and concise book focuses on the history of the major realms in Northern Europe during a period in which the relatively stable society of the High Middle Ages was shaken by wars, plague and depopulation. Taking into account, and challenging, the findings of recent research, Margaret L. Kekewich and Susan Rose present their own distinctive interpretations. Britain, France and the Empire, 1350-1500 - contrasts the structure of rural society with the growing importance of towns and traders - examines the development of the political structures within the various realms - pays particular attention to the way in which ideals of kingship were or were not fulfilled in practice - discusses warfare and logistics - considers the enormous significance of religion alongside the evolution of a distinctive court society and the growth of intellectual interests. Adopting a thematic approach, and illustrated throughout, this is the ideal introductory guide to a transitional period in European history.
