Review: The First European Revolution: 970-1215

User Review  - Katie - Goodreads

"Europe" owes its existence to non-eldest sons and scholars. Oh, and castles! Moore's use of "revolution" is somewhat problematic, but he covers a tremendous amount of ground in 200 pages. I'm also amazed at his anecdotes given the tremendous difficulty involved in using medieval sources. Read full review
