9780060170332: The Civilization of the Middle Ages: A Completely Revised and Expanded Edition of Medieval History, the Life and Death of a Civilization

[This is Part 2 of a 2-part Audiobook CASSETTE Library Edition in vinyl case.]

[Read by Frederick Davidson]

In 1963 Norman F. Cantor published his breakthrough narrative history of the Middle Ages. Here is a significant revision, update, and expansion of that work.

The Civilization of the Middle Ages incorporates newer research and novel perspectives, especially on the foundations of the Middle Ages and the late Middle Ages of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. A sharper focus on social history, Jewish history, women's roles in society, and popular religion and heresy distinguish the book. While the first and last sections of the book are almost entirely new and many additions have been incorporated in the intervening sections, Cantor has retained the powerful narrative flow that made earlier editions so accessible.

About the Author:

NORMAN F. CANTOR (1929-2004) was emeritus professor of history, sociology, and comparative literature at New York University. His academic honors included appointments as a Rhodes Scholar, Porter Ogden Jacobus Fellow at Princeton University, and Fulbright professor at Tel Aviv University. His earlier books include Inventing the Middle Ages, nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award, and The Civilization of the Middle Ages, one of the most widely read narratives of the Middle Ages in the English language.

From AudioFile:

Booklist called this book the "standard one-volume history" of the period and said, "No better explanation of medievalism is available to the general reader." Cantor, Professor of History and Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at New York University, writes with wonderful fluidity; his lucid prose moves from topic to topic with effortless grace. Reader Frederick Davidson contributes a British enunciation to the text but adds little enthusiasm. Listen to this to learn something, not for the production. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
