    After a discussion of the problems surrounding the term “central Europe”, the authors proceed through the medieval history of Bohemia, Poland, and Hungary. The general point that they attempt to make is that the region followed many similar trends to the rest of medieval Latin Christendom, although one might wonder whether this focus on the west is part of an attempt to cut the region off from its eastern position in other scholarship.

The general point that they attempt to make is that the region followed many similar trends to the rest of medieval Latin Christendom, although one might wonder whether this focus on the west is part of an attempt to cut the region off from its eastern position in other scholarship. At times the book feels more like three books squashed together to step away from national historiographies, with most headings (economy, lordship, literary culture, etc.) broken into three, and the book offers no synthetic conclusion. However, one needs to appreciate the synthesis of material in four languages not commonly known to Anglophone readers.

    An extremely good synthesis work and a great starting point for any student intending to focus on medieval Central Europe. The authors reflect the latest scholarship in a critical way, often commenting on historiographical trends. One could regret that there is no Czech author, but the two Polish historians obviously know Bohemia well.
