"The aim of this book is to serve as an introduction to the history of Europe between the middle of the thirteenth century and the early part of the sixteenth. I hope to persuade my readers that this is an interesting period, and I have quoted a good deal from contemporary writings, because men's ipsissima verba are surely bound to be more striking and more convincing than the 'secondary' conclusions drawn from them. I have also assumed in my readers diverse intellectual temperaments. Those who are not attracted by past politics may find more interest in past economics, or in religion or art or the history of ideas, and quite substantial sections of the book are devoted to each of these topics. Yet politics remain the staple diet of the historian, and I have taken as my principal subject the growth of the power of the State and the manner in which this is reflected in ideas concerning politics. In treating a series of diverse themes I have tried to keep this main thesis in view. Thus, while the book begins and ends with contrasting chapters on the State and men's notions about it in the thirteenth century and the early sixteenth century, the chapter on the early Renaissance touches on the intensification of civic spirit, while, of the two chapters primarily concerned with religion, the former emphasizes the patriotic element in the Hussite movement and the latter the decisive religious consequences of Germans s uncharacteristic political disintegration." - from the introduction.
