This is the second collection of studies by Stephen D. White to be published by Variorum, the first being Feuding and Peace-Making in Eleventh-Century France. The essays in this volume look principally at France and England from Merovingian and Anglo-Saxon times up to the 12th century. They call into question the conventional practice of studying kinship and feudalism as independent systems of legal institutions and propose new strategies for examining them.
