This volume of The New Cambridge Medieval History covers most of the period of Frankish and Carolingian dominance in western Europe. It was one of remarkable political and cultural coherence, combined with crucial, very diverse and formative developments in every sphere of life. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the authors examine the interaction between rulers and ruled, how power and authority actually worked, and the society and culture of Europe as a whole. The volume is divided into four parts. Part I encompasses the events and political developments in the whole of the British Isles, the west and east Frankish kingdoms, Scandinavia, the Slavic and Balkan regions, Spain, Italy, and those aspects of Byzantine and Muslim history which impinged on the west between c. 700 and c. 900. Parts II, III and IV cover themes and topics concerning church and society, and cultural and intellectual developments.Reviews"This volume is an eloquent witness to the creativity and diversity of Europe's early medieval past, and to the fertility and vitality of recent and current medieval scholarship."--Choice"The appearance of The New Cambridge Medieval History is a landmark in historical publishing, and it will become the essential reference work for the latest in research of this period."--Carl A. Volz" It succeeds in making clear how much is known about the period 700 to 900 and provides innumerable clues as to what still needs to be discovered. Professor McKitterick and her collaborators have created a fitting monument to one of the great scholarly accomplishments that have occurred since the publication three quarters of a century ago of the original volumes of the CMH dealing with the early Middle Ages, namely the successful effort to illuminate and thus eliminate the last Dark Age."--Richard E. Sullivan, The Catholic Historical Review"... many of the essays are well written and of high quality."--Bernard S.
