This accessible and lucid guide to medieval political thought * gives a synthesis of the latest scholarship * incorporates the results of research until now unavailable in English * focuses on the crucial primary source material * provides the historical and intellectual context for political ideas.

Canning has produced an ideal introductory text for undergraduate and postgraduate students of the period.
