В этой книге рассматривается наиболее важный вопрос немецкой политической истории периода позднего Средневековья: почему в конце Средневековья, вместо объединения под одной короной "национального государства", появляется разнообразие государств и территорий? Ответ, по мнению автора скрывается не в предполагаемых неудачах Германского королевства, а , напротив, в творческих успехах аристократических светских династий и князей церкви. Их коллективные усилия за столетие после 1050 г. образуют в целом более заметную территориальную структуру региональной власти, уже появляющуюся к XIII в. в результате их усилий в экономике, внутренней и внешней колонизации, учреждении новых замков, городов, монастырей и коммуникаций; в местном, духовном и имперском законе, и также реформах, которые они проводили в своих областях. В исследовании рассмотрены также вопросы династической политики, включая союзы и конфликты, наследование и разделения владений.Образцы сканов:
