Publisher: Manchester ; New York : Manchester University Press ; New York : Distributed exclusively in the USA by St. Martin's Press, 1996.

Summary:
Eric John is one of the most distinguished and provocative of Anglo-Saxonists. This new and original analysis is the fruit of thirty years of scholarship and therefore has something of the nature of a testament. Mr John seeks to make use of social anthropological insight to understand the type of primitive people the Anglo-Saxons were and sets them in their European context.
