Busy professors seeking fresh lecture material and graduate students wanting a sound synthesis of early medieval history will find this book useful. It traces the history of Western Europe from the Roman Empire's political and economic difficulties of the 4th century down to the intellectual renaissance associated with the Ottonian kings in the 10th century; emphasis is on the traditional areas of political and religious change; there is very little social history.

The lengthy historiographical discussions will excite the scholar but bore American undergraduates. For general collections
