This valuable and up-to-date guide to the complex and generally unfamiliar history of medieval Germany provides a comprehensive and vivid portrayal of this important time period in German and European history. Haverkamp begins with the accession of Henry IV to the German throne in 1056, takes in the reign of the energetic and successful Frederick Barbarossa (1152-1190) and ends with the election of Rudolf Habsburg who reimposed order following the fall of the Hohenstaufens. The German empire stretched from Rome to Pomerania, and from Hainaut to Silesia; its history is of major significance for the politics of Europe, for the expansion of Latin Christendom, and for the fortunes of the Papacy. Every aspect of its internal life is covered: economic growth and population increase, education, trade and industry, the church and religious life. Political development and accompanying social changes are examined and placed in their European context.

This book deserves to become the standard text in English for students of Germany in the central Middle Ages.' Journal of Medieval History
