Translated by L. A. Manyon.

"Here is one of those rare books of impeccable scholarship which no intelligent person could possibly read without pleasure and interest and excitement...Place-names, chansons, heraldry, technology, demography: every source is pillaged that can possibly cast light on how men thought and lived and acted. It is this and the wealth of concrete illustrations that give Bloch's work its enduring value: what he shows is not a bloodless system but the living and vitalising force which shaped society in western Europe for four creative centuries." - Geoffrey Barraclough, Observer (London).
