Making of Europe: Conquest, Colonizati/Bartlett, Robe/Paper/0140154094/S027-G
A highly stimulating analysis of European history between 950 and 1350, presenting the period as one of political, military and cultural colonisation over the countries on the margins of Europe.
Winner of the Wolfson Literary Award for History.
A wave of internal conquest, settlement and economic growth took place in Europe during the High Middle Ages, which transformed it from a world of small separate communities into a network of powerful kingdoms with distinctive cultures. In this compelling and provocative book Robert Bartlett vividly shows how Europe was itself a product of colonization, as much as it was later a colonizer, and what this did to shape the continent and the world today.
