Bicycle: The History
David V. Herlihy
Yale University Press
An Objective Look at the Bicycle
A good book on good paper with good photos. This book is about the bicycle -- and it isn't. While Herlihy devotes a good amount of time to the evolution of the machine we adore, he spends as much time discussing its many uses and social implications through the years. The focus, though, always comes bake to the bike. As I said in Listmania, David Herihy covers the histroy of the bicycle in ...
The Black Death and the Transformation of the West
Samuel K. Cohn Jr.
Harvard University Press
Short but provacative
David Herlihy's revisionist work, The Black Death and the Transformation of the West, would have inevitably been cached away and forgotten; a fate that most miscellaneous intellectual writings face when their authors pass away. Luckily for historians, Herlihy's work, consisting of three unpublished essays about the Black Death, has survived intact and in many ways has been improved upon by ...
Harvard University Press, 1985
Excellent overview, but a bit narrow
Herlihy has done a masterful job of detaling the daily life of most Europeans during the middle ages, exploring gender roles and the various "chores" a household had to tend to as the seasons changed. It provides an outstanding overview of the complex and labor intensive work of survival during this period of time. However, I found it a bit narrow in terms of the time period it covered. The ...

The Western Experience: Antiquity and the Middle Ages

Having been challenged by interpretations,and analyzing the assumptions behind the concept of Western civilization, The Western Experience presents a confused panorama about what Western Civilization is all about.

Tuscans and Their Families: A Study of the Florentine Catasto of 1427
, David Herlihy
ACLS Humanities E-Book
Irreplacable resource for the period.
This book is an absolutely essential tool for anybody who seeks to understand the period. By using a series of census-like documents called the Catasto, these researchers have found a number of astonishing things out about a period not famous for information about its lower and middle classes. Getting the information out of the book can be a challenge, but it's all there: information about every ...
Medieval Culture and Society
Walker & Co
This anthology of judiciously selected sources concerned with medieval society and culture presents an intriguing view of Western society from its emergence as a distinctively "European" culture in the early Middle Ages (ca. 500-1000), to the burgeoning scholarship and literary and artistic expression of the central Middle Ages (ca. 1000-1350), and the dislocations and disasters of the closing Middle Ages (ca. 1350-1500). The documents ...
Der Schwarze Tod und die Verwandlung Europas.
The Tour Is Won on the Alpe: Alpe d'Huez and the Classic Battles of the Tour de France (Photography)
Great read but questionable history.
This book is a fun read to get some basic history on Alpe d'Huez, but some of the facts, especially on Lance Armstrong, are wrong. Also, there are a couple of chapters that have contradictory "facts". I think that the results in back are correct, but I do not know for sure and finding at least two things that are not correct make me question the stuff I do not know for sure. The two things I ...
