The authors of Cultures of Power proffer diverse perspectives on the prehistory of government in Northern France, Spain, Germany, the Low Countries, and England. Political, social, ecclesiastical, and cultural history are brought to bear on topics such as aristocracies, women, rituals, commemoration, and manifestations of power through literary, legal, and scriptural means.
Thomas N. Bisson is Henry Charles Lea Professor of History at Harvard University. Among his previous books are Assemblies and Representation in Languedoc in the Thirteenth Century, Fiscal Accounts of Catalonia Under the Early Count-Kings (1151-1213), and The Medieval Crown of Aragon: A Short History.
