"When Hugh Capet took the throne of France in 987, his kingdom was weak and insignificant, but from an auspicious beginning he founded a dynasty that was to last over 300 years and came to dominate western Europe." "Capetian France is an authoritative overview of the country's development from 987 to 1328. This carefully updated second edition contains maps and family trees, and retains the original book's popular balance between a compelling narrative and a fascinating examination of the period's main themes."--Jacket

The Domesday Book is the record of the great survey of England completed in 1086, executed for William I of England (aka William the Conqueror). One of the main purposes of the survey was to determine who held what and what taxes had been liable under Edward the Confessor; the judgment of the Domesday assessors was final -- whatever the book said about who held the material wealth or what it was worth, was the law, and there was no appeal. It was written in Latin, although there were some vernacular words inserted for native terms with no previous Latin equivalent, and the text was highly abbreviated. Certain scholars on common law property rights regard the Domesday Book as the first written account of "who owns what" in the history of common law. Thus, this book might represent the birth of the modern concept of property rights in The West. This book challenges the orthodox views of William I's great census of 1086, to give an intriguing story of the origins of England's greatest historical record, as well as new insights into its contents
