The second History Book Club book (July-August-September, #2) is THE SHORTER CAMBRIDGE MEDIEVAL HISTORY Volume 1 edited by Charles Previté-Orton from the larger series created by J.B. Bury. It was designed to be the most extensive guide to the medieval era available in a reasonably readable form. Volume 1 is entitled The Later Roman Empire to the Twelfth Century and is comprised of six sections: The Later Roman Empire, The Break-up of the Empire, Byzantium and Islam, The Dark Ages in the West, The Foundation of Western Europe, and The Twelfth Century. It covers the period from the end of the third century to the beginning of the twelfth, spanning the collapse of the western Roman Empire and the decline of ancient European civilisation.
