Timberdoodle's review
 

Holes in Your History?
If you or your older child find yourself bothered by significant holes in your understanding of history, then consider the latest title from the author of The Story of the World, Susan Wise Bauer's The History of the Medieval World: From the Conversion of Constantine to the First Crusade.

A Tumultuous Era
In this second volume of Susan Wise Bauer's projected four-volume world history, narratives of both the monarchs and the clerics succinctly illustrate the tumultuous era when religion often became the weapon of choice. More than just a dry retelling of facts, The History of the Medieval World also includes the reason people and events followed the patterns they did.

A Masterful Retelling of Medievel History
The History of the Medieval World is masterful retelling of the historical movements from the fourth century to the beginnings of the twelfth century, from the conversion of Constantine to the First Crusade. It includes events from western and eastern Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, the Far East, South Asia, and the Americas.

Maps, Timelines, Illustrations
Each chapter is about 10 pages long, covering a period of about 20-50 years and including at least one map. Chapters end with a timeline so you can re-anchor what you've just read into the bigger context of time. The History of the Medieval World is 746 pages 20 black and white illustrations and 85 useful maps.

Note to our more conservative customers:
Though authored by a Christian, The History of the Medieval World is written from a history scholar's perspective, not that of a theologian. In other words she gives the Bible a fair hearing, but places it alongside other historical documents without distinction. Read The History of the Medieval World with that in mind and you will find that there is a wealth of information in this volume about the peoples, nations, cultures, and wars of the era.
