Description


"It would be hard to imagine a better, more reliable introduction to the last days of the Anglo-Saxon world than this stirring book."--Michael Dirda, Washington Post


"A swift and, by necessity, highly speculative account of some murders between 1016 and 1074 that reveal much about 11th-century English politics, religion, codes of honor, and kingship....A graceful examination of the intricate tapestry of a culture so distant in time and temperament as to be virtually extraterrestrial."--Kirkus Reviews


"Fletcher writes with precision and wit. He has a nose for nuance, a ready supply of pithy phrases, and no time for the jargon that besets so much contemporary academic writing...Bloodfeud dazzles and delights."--Christopher Silvester, Sunday Times


"[Fletcher] enlarges skilfully on the historical context in which all the events took place and artfully on their other dimensions, taking the opportunity at the same time to expound his views on...apprehension of the millennium and the quality of the Anglo-Saxon taxation system."--Simon Keynes, The Spectator


"An excellent book." --Frank McLynn, Literary Review
