An uneven collection of chapters by different specialists that are intended to add up to a short but through overview of (western) Europe in the early middle ages, or 400 - 1000. Originally published in 2000 the book covers a period that has been much addressed in longer tomes by single authors in the years since - Chris Wickham, Framing the Early Middle Ages: Europe and the Mediterranean, 400-800 and The Inheritance of Rome: Illuminating the Dark Ages, 400-1000; Peter Heather, The Restoration o ...more

While I could understand why it was done, I don't think the kind of "clumping" method the writers use is very successful--though it did succeed in confusing me. I think the book would have been better if the areas had been separated out even if the book had to be longer. I thought the chapter on religion was the best. It stood out from the others, at least to me.
