I looked forward to this book when it first came out based on the author's reputation. His previous book, Inventing the Middle Ages,was great, and based on his comments of other historians, usually non-academic, believed he had high standards.
In the first edition hard cover edition, on which part of this review is based, he stated Marco Polo was from Florence and that the Arabs took the Byzantine capital. Casual readers know that Polo was from Venice and that it was the Turks who conquered Constantinople. Despite a letter to the publisher, no erata sheet or response was ever received. It is good to note that Marco Polo is now acknowledged as Venetian, and that while the Turks have not received their due, as least it reads Moslem armies.
Still, a scholar of Mr. Cantor's reputation, should have known better. Even more important, publishers have a obligation to produce erata sheets to ensure that history is as accurate as possible. (We may have different views o! f objective facts, but these two items are as factual as fallable humans can be sure of.)
In short, a readable book that can now be recommended for those who want a good, easy reading introduction. For me, the obvious errors of the first edition and lack of response to my inquiries still cause concern. Thank goodness for the internet and Amazon where these views can now be expressed instead of ignored.

_Civilization of the Middle Ages_ has many good points, and
overall I recommend it for readers with little prior
background in medieval history and culture; only a couple of
technical caveats prevent me from rating it higher.

The text flows well -- it's clear and easy to comprehend,
and informative without being overly prosy, or laden with
detail which would overwhelm a reader who is only beginning
to explore the Middle Ages. Most readers should have no
problem reading this book from cover to cover, enjoying and
comprehending all of it, something one
cannot always say about a history book. It's focused enough
to have a coherent flow and structure, while still ranging
wide enough to cover a number of diverse topics; the book
doesn't get stuck in a rut of politics or church history or
some such, the way some introductory texts do.

Unfortunately, the book is made less useful to scholars by
the lack of either a bibliography or footnotes. (There is a
recommended reading list, which I usually avoid, but in this
case it's wonderfully detailed, and almost worth the price
of the
paperback edition to a beginner who wants a list of reliable
sources for continuing study. But although it's a useful
bonus, it doesn't make up for the lack of a bibliography.)
This is clearly a book for the beginner or general reader,
and one doesn't expect extensive footnotes in such
a book, but one does expect to see a bibliography. As it
is, the reader who wants to pursue some point of
interest must begin from practically a standing start. This
is a major flaw, and took about two points off of my
numerical rating.

This thoroughly modern treatise brings the latest thinking and information to the man-in-the-street!

It sweeps a key millenium without swamping the reader with minutiae. The language is very engaging without being populist; Cantor never sacrifices fact for the sake of making a point, as vignettes carry themselves here.

This book serves as a reminder of the relevance the Middle Ages have today, at the end of another millenium in a post-modern crisis of conscience: It debunks many a myth still abounding in our psyche.

Rather than sway into the fashionable, Cantor balances interpretations of male vs. female dominances, warrior vs. partnership ethos, or conquered vs. conqueror histories, as much as can be pieced together.

"Civilization" thus stands to balance many a polarised debate, simply in giving renewed perspective to such a formative yet so poorly understood period

This is a very readable and enjoyable introduction to the philosophical, religious, and belligerent currents that swept through the Middle Ages. Dr. Cantor, an excellent teacher of history, successfully points out how major medieval upheavals that took place largely in Western Europe will continue to exert their influence well into the second millenium A.D.
