R.C. Davis provided the classic account of the European medieval world; equipping generations of undergraduate and ‘A’ level students with sufficient grasp of the period to debate diverse historical perspectives and reputations. His book has been important grounding for both modernists required to take a course in medieval history, and those who seek to specialise in the medieval period. In updating this classic work to a third edition, the additional author now enables students to see history in action; the diverse viewpoints and important research that has been undertaken since Davis’ second edition, and progressed historical understanding. Each of Davis original chapters now concludes with a ‘new directions and developments’ section by Professor RI Moore, Emeritus of Newcastle University. A key work updated in a method that both enhances subject understanding and sets important research in its wider context. A vital resource, now up-to-date for generations of historians to come.

This book considers some of the Western interpretations of The Shahnameh - Iran's national epic, and argues that these interpretations are not only methodologically flawed, but are also more revealing of Western concerns and anxieties about Iran than they are about the Shahnameh.

Just before the year 1000 a young Viking named Thorvald the Far-farer turned his back on the pagan gods of his fathers to preach the Christian gospel, travelling to Jerusalem, the golden heart of all medieval world maps. A thousand years later Victoria Clark retraces his epic voyage to discover how the dramatic events of Thorvald's Europe still resonate today. This is a compelling, highly acclaimed blend of history and travel, in the manner of William Dalrymple's bestselling From the Holy Mountain. 'Deeply engaging . . . The author's great sensitivity shines as brightly as ever it did in Why Angels Fall' Independent on Sunday 'She writes books whose ambition and impressiveness must leave most of her journalist friends ill with envy' Financial Times 'Entertaining, instructive and relevant' Sunday Times Book of the Week 'I read every word of it, and went back over some of the chapters and read them again for sheer pleasure. A triumph' John Cornwell, author of Hitler's Pope
