This study is an exploration of the collective values and activities of lay society in Western Europe between the tenth century and the thirteenth. Arguing that medieval attitudes and behaviour have too readily been defined in terms of hierarchical structures of government, clerical thought,or narrow notion of kinship, the author instead places new emphasis on the horizontal bonds of collective association which permeated society in medieval England, France and Burgundy, Germany, the Netherlands, and Italy.By refocusing on the social and political values that characterized lay collective activity, this book offers a stimulating new approach to the history of medieval Europe. The second edition of this important study incorporates a substantial new introduction, which amplifies the arguments of theoriginal edition and takes account of recent research.ON THE FIRST EDITION`all students of the Middle Ages and of collective organization will be indebted to Reynolds for this rich and original book.

The first half of this book is quite difficult. The chapters on medieval law, parishes and rural society presuppose a great deal of background knowledge. Insofar as a general argument is being made between the lines, it can probably be deciphered only by advanced readers. The second half of the book was easier to understand and much more interesting. Chapter 6 on urban communities perceptively argues against the modern tendency to see medieval republics as precursors of modern democracies. Chapter 8 is a thorough analysis of kingdoms, where the author explains at some length how government and society interacted at the topmost level of medieval society. Throughout the book the author criticizes anachronisms, teleological interpretations and obfuscating concepts (such as 'feudal') in modern historiography. It's all very enlightening, so I certainly recommend this book to students of medieval political society.
