    #6A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous 14th Century

    A Distant Mirror:  The Calamitous 14th Century
    Barbara W. Tuchman—the acclaimed author of the Pulitzer Prize–winning classic The Guns of August—once again marshals her gift for character, history, and sparkling prose to compose an astonishing portrait of medieval Europe.
     
    The fourteenth century reflects two contradictory images: on the one hand, a glittering age of crusades, cathedrals, and chivalry; on the other, a world plunged into chaos and spiritual agony. In this revelatory work, Barbara W. Tuchman examines not only the great rhythms of history but the grain and texture of domestic life: what childhood was like; what marriage meant; how money, taxes, and war dominated the lives of serf, noble, and clergy alike. Granting her subjects their loyalties, treacheries, and guilty passions, Tuchman re-creates the lives of proud cardinals, university scholars, grocers and clerks, saints and mystics, lawyers and mercenaries, and, dominating all, the knight—in all his valor and “furious follies,” a “terrible worm in an iron cocoon.”

    "I thought it was an intriguing look into the history of codes. Remarkable to think how much we've advanced from primitive ways of concealing a message in Egypt to now, where the methods are beyond my comprehension. A must for anyone interested in secrets and spying."

    "A good solution for a terrible and often horrifying time in the American industrial revolution that often pitted the poor working class against barons who were so greedy they took advantage of the laborers at every opportunity. This book explains one such incident which led to a changed labor management relationship in this country. High marks."
