'This welcome synthesis provides an up to-date history of the High Middle Ages in a region that is too little-known and understood in the Anglophone world. ... This volume, enhanced by three maps, is sure to become the standard in English. Summing up: essential. All levels/libraries.' P. W. Knoll, Choice
'The arrival of this book is more than welcome for those of us teaching medieval history beyond Western Europe ... The amount of work required to produce this must have been immense and the payoff is tremendous for the reader ... Central Europe in the High Middle Ages makes the medieval histories of these three incredibly important medieval polities available to an English language audience of students and scholars, and it will hopefully facilitate the expansion of the idea of medieval Europe throughout college classrooms.' Christian Raffensperger, Speculum
