Reassessing Anglo-Saxon England is not a general survey of the period; rather, it is a topical treatment, covering those areas that interest the author

Reassessing Anglo-Saxon England is not a general survey of the period; rather, it is a topical treatment, covering those areas that interest the author.

To investigate Anglo-Saxon England politogenesis we should consider the period from the 5th to the 9th centuries. As for Rus', the similar processes took place here later, in the 8th – 11th centuries. In historiography, there are no works devoted to the comparative analysis of state formation in Anglo-Saxon England and in Rus'. Among numerous books and academic articles, that appeared in the period between the 1970s and the 1990s and touched upon different aspects of political life of the Anglo-Saxon society, we should lay the emphasis on the monographs by Douglas J.

Eric John is one of the most distinguished and provocative of Anglo-Saxonists. This new and original analysis is the fruit of thirty years of scholarship and therefore has something of the nature of a testament. Mr John seeks to make use of social anthropological insight to understand the type of people the Anglo-Saxons were and sets them, unusually, in their European context. He starts at the beginnings of English society, looks then at Anglo-Saxon pagans, Mercian hegemony, English politics in the ninth century, the West Saxon conquest of England, holiness and hubris, the restoration of learning, the ruin of the House of Cerdic, the northern Empire and the avoidance of chaos. Brilliantly and entertainingly written, this is an interesting and remarkable book.
