Passages From Antiquity to Feudalism (reprint, 1974)

Perry Anderson



304 pages


Verso World History Series


This prologue and its companion Lineages of the Absolute State together elucidate the relationship between antiquity and feudalism that generally falls into the disciplinary chasm between ancient and medieval history. The author explores the social and political world of classical antiquity, the nature of the transition from it to the medieval world, and the resultant structure and evolution of feudalism in Europe. Regional division, both of the Mediterranean and of Europe are a central theme throughout.
