Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 1999. 168pp. looks unused. The debate on the Norman Conquest is still ongoing. Because of the great interest that has always been shown in the subject of conquest and its aftermath interpretations have been numerous and conflicting; students bewildered by controversies will find it an indispensable guide through the morass of literature. In the medieval period writers were still deeply involved in the legal and linguistic consequences of the Norman victory. Later the issues became directly relevant to debates about constitutional rights; the theory of a 'Norman yoke' provided first a call for revolution and, by the nineteenth century, a romantic vision of a lost Saxon paradise. When history became a subject for academic study controversies still raged round such subjects as Saxon versus Norman institutions. These have gradually been placed in a broader social setting where there is more room for consensus. Interest has now moved to such subjects as peoples and races, frontier societies, women's studies and colonialism. Changing perspectives have shown the advantage of studying a period from the late tenth to the early thirteenth century rather than one beginning in 1066. (publishers notes). Paperback.
