Feudal Society, Volume 1

Feudal Society, Volume 1 by Marc Bloch

An extensive and rather academic study of feudalism from the beginning.

It opens with a discussion of the invasions they faced, and then its conditions such as issues in trade and travel, views of history, and more. It then goes in deep with feudalism itself -- the term feudal was actually derived from a legal term of the era, which did not, of course, apply to the system at the time. Vassals, the change from service being fit only for a slave as in Roman times, the terminology and its sources and mutations, the differences over centuries and across large stretches of Europe.
