    1. This was actually a rereading for me. I first read this at Saginaw Valley College in 1973. I had just gotten out of the Navy and I was looking for something to believe in after all the death and destruction. I found it in Medieval History. It was far enough away that the recent past did not impinge upon it and it was safe. It helped bury the ghosts that a Hospital Corpsman carries around with him. I went on to grad school at SUNY Binghamton with Dr. Norman Cantor. For a while I supped with the g [...]


    2. starts with Iberians who apparently evolved from ape-creatures before moving to the peninsula, which at one time was not separated from the islands by the channel. but then the waters came and now you transchannel iberians are screwed. then come the celts, who left their signature all across Europe. then came the bloody romans. then the romans left. then the germans came. then the danes. okay: now this admixture counts as vaguely 'English,' at least in linguistic terms. but then we get Vikings w [...]


    3. Very glad I read this. A straight-forward political, religios, economic, and cultural history of England from Roman times through the end of the High Middle Ages that is accessible, interesting, and easy-to-read.The authors do an excellent job explaining the importance not only of notable events but also of the even more influential development of trends. Readers walk away with more than enough dates and facts to store away into memory, but the true value is understanding that English history ha [...]


    4. This is by far the funniest history book I’ve read in awhile. Aside from the dry text aspect of most history books, this one is full of snarky comments galore! My favorite being, “And this daughter sported the highly original name of Matilda.” Everyone was named Matilda for like 500 years. The other highpoint was that the text made a point of reminding the reader that Henry III was afraid of thunder, and to this day when I think of poor Henry he sounds like the singing Prince out of Monty [...]


    5. Wonderfully plain and easy text book on the early history of England. I am taking a British Isles History class that I am thoroughly enjoying. It is wonderful to not have to dread the at-home readings, either. This text is very readable and though not witty or tons of fun (no color pictures or anything) it certainly does the job and does it well. I find the information easy to retain as I read and each book (a 4-volume set from the beginning of recorded history to present) is quite small so divi [...]


    6. The classic textbook for medieval English history. While Hollister paints a very thorough and detailed account of medieval English political and institutional history, I did not find it to be a great book to teach from. There is too much time spent on detail and not enough on interpretation. Next time around, I'll be looking for a text that is more accessible for my students.


    7. A decent general history of England from prehistory to 1399. Hollister and his students (8th edition) have some gaps in their coverage and are misleading in other areas (such as the state of Jews in England). The problems are minimal and the book worth having as a general history.



    8. The Making of England to 1399 (History of England (Houghton Mifflin Company : Eighth Edition), 1.) by C. Warren Hollister (2005)


    9. This book tells the basic story of England from the Romans to 1399> There is nothing outstanding about this version - it tells the most basic of outline.


    10. The information is good, the organisation straightforward, and the text highly readable, but it presents a very male-centric view of history and barely touches on major female figures.


    11. This textbook offers the reader a good overview of English history. The authors infuse their narrative with much recent scholarship on the period.
