1 Review
All the mystery, earthiness and romance of the Middle Ages are captured in this panorama of everyday life. The evolving concepts of intimacy are explored--from the semi-obscure eleventh century through the first stirrings of the Renaissance world in the fifteenth century. Color and black-and-white illustrations.

I find this book, not very easy to read as a continuous narrative. It's a good source for essays and lectures. I'm not particularly in tune with 20th Century French Social history. Some good diagrams and architectural drawings. Read full review
