This study offers fresh perspectives on later medieval Europe, beginning with a systematic survey of the processes of expansion, consolidation and cultural exchange in different countries and regions across the continent, from the British Isles and the Iberian peninsula to Russia and Scandinavia. The author then analyses developmental tendencies in state and constitution, economy, society, culture and religion. In the final section, he reviews current debates and research problems, with a focus on economics and culture. No jacket.
