    Inhaltsangabe

    From tales of chivalrous knights to the barbarity of trial by ordeal, no era has been a greater source of awe, horror, and wonder than the Middle Ages. In handsomely crafted prose and with the grace and authority of his extraordinary gift for narrative history, William Manchester leads us from a civilization tottering on the brink of collapse to the grandeur of its rebirth, the Renaissance. The latter was a dense explosion of energy that spawned some of history's greatest poets, philosophers, and painters, as well as some of its most spectacular villains.
    Knight time: explore our list of titles about the Middle Ages.
    ©1979, 1980 William Manchester (P)2007 Blackstone Audio Inc.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "An absorbing and readable history." ( School Library Journal)
    "Manchester provides easy access to a fascinating age when our modern mentality was just being born." ( Chicago Tribune)
    "Manchester has not forgotten the skills that, with invective, eloquence, and anecdote, make him a master storyteller."( Kirkus Reviews)
