Matthew Innes is Professor of History at Birkbeck College, University of London. He has published widely on the social, political and cultural history of early medieval Europe. His book State and Society in the Early Middle Ages won the Royal Historical Society's Gladstone Historical Book Prize in 2000 and his research was recognized by the award of a Philip Leverhulme Prize in 2004.
'Matthew Innes' new survey fills a nagging void for teachers of early medieval history ... He engages in a dialogue with the sources and literature and with his audience as well ... leading students to an appreciation of current views and competing scholarly interpretations ... The bibliographical essays are a superb introduction to the literature of the field, invaluable to introductory and advanced students as well as seasoned professionals.'
