Product description

Review

"An awesomely ambitious work: an attempt, in the heroic tradition of Pirenne, to make sense of nothing less than the reshaping of antiquity, and the origins of modern Europe.... Heather is a wonderfully fluent writer, with a consistent ability to grab hold of his readers attention. The result
is a book which richly merits reading by those interested in the future of Europe as well as its past."

--Tom Holland, BBC History Magazine
