Abstract:

Exploring the successful Norman invasion of England in 1066, this concise and book focuses especially on the often dramatic and enduring changes wrought by William the Conqueror and his followers. From the perspective of a modern social historian, Hugh M. Thomas considers the conquest's wide-ranging impact by taking a fresh look at such traditional themes as the influence of battles and great men on history and assessing how far the shift in ruling dynasty and noble elites affected broader aspects of English history. With its combination of narrative and analysis, this book will capture the imagination of all readers interested in medieval history.
