Henry William Carless DAVIS
R.C. Davis provided the classic account of the European medieval world; equipping generations of undergraduate and A level students with sufficient grasp of the period to debate diverse historical perspectives and reputations. His book has been important grounding for both modernists required to take a course in medieval history, and those who seek to specialise in the medieval period.
In updating this classic work to a third edition, the additional author now enables students to see history in action; the diverse viewpoints and important research that has been undertaken since Davis second edition, and progressed historical understanding. Each of Davis original chapters now concludes with a new directions and developments section by Professor RI Moore, Emeritus of Newcastle University.
