The Dawn of a New Era, 1250-1453

“Professor Cheyney has accomplished one of the most difficult tasks which the historian can undertake: he has characterized the life pf a period with brevity, with charming simplicity and clarity of style, and without any serious sacrifice of the historical truth of which he has so long been the stanchest of exponents.”
– The American Historical Review

“The merit of the book consists in its mature presentation of the best results of modern scholarship within a broad but defined range of topics. Its value is enhanced by the authoritative bibliography, compiled, like others in this series, with helpful critical comments”
– The Journal of Modern History
