Reviews

'Ever since Otto Brunner, the phenomenon of the feud in the late Middle Ages and the early modern period has been a constant (and contested) subject-matter in the historiography. But despite all the debates and controversies that have surrounded this theme, the time seems ripe for a new synthesis which, building on recent research, offers overarching interpretations. Such a synthesis is presented by Hillay Zmora ... an important interpretation that will stimulate further research of the noble feud in the late Middle Ages and the beginning of the modern era.' Sven Rabeler, translated from Historische Zeitschrift
'[Zmora's] compelling topic, thoughtful argumentation, and lively prose will not fail to interest specialists and nonspecialists alike.' Sarah L. Leonard, The Historian
"... a new milestone in scholarship on noble feuds in early modern Germany." Jeppe Buchert Netterstrom, Renaissance Quarterly
"... concise and lucid ..." Stuart Carroll, H-HRE
