The Middle Ages
In this single indispensable volume, one of America’s ranking scholars combines a life’s work of research and teaching with the art of lively narration. Both authoriatative and beautifully told, THE MIDDLE AGES is the full story of the thousand years between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance -- a time that saw the rise of kings and emperors, the flowering of knighthood, the development of Europe, the increasing power of the Church, and the advent of the middle class. With exceptional grace and wit, Morris Bishop vividly reconstructs this distinctive era of European history in a work that will inform and delight scholars and general readers alike.

For starters, I rarely rate books. However, I must make an exception when it comes to Morris Bishop's The Middle Ages. This book is not only informative, but it keeps the interest of the reader from beginning to end. If you're looking for an exquisite history of the Middle Ages, this is THE book to read.
