about

This book is the first in English in more than half a century to survey this history of a great Mediterranean federation whose homelands were Catalonia and Aragon. Based on recent research, it seeks to convey a sense of the energy, drama, and colour of a creative and expansionist peoplebetween the twelfth and the fifteenth centuries. T. N. Bisson lays due stress on individual achievement and personality, while at the same time providing a balanced survey of political and dynastic evolution, institutional foundations, economic and cultural matters, and the socio-economic weaknesseswhich led eventually to a crisis in the federated realms of the late Middle Ages.

Editorial Reviews

`excellent and useful survey ... work which, with a long and intelligently descriptive bibliography at the end, will serve as an introduction to its complex and difficult subject for many years to come.'David J. Wasserstein, Mediterranean Historical Review
