Michael Grant CBE (21 November 1914 – 4 October 2004) was an English classicist, numismatist, and author of numerous books on ancient history. His 1956 translation of Tacitus's Annals of Imperial Rome remains a standard of the work. Having studied and held a number of academic posts in the United Kingdom and the Middle East, he retired early to devote himself fully to writing. He once described himself as "one of the very few freelancers in the field of ancient history: a rare phenomenon".

Grant's book will produce some interesting future discussions. Inside and outside the classroom, it promises to be a useful catalyst for rethinking and debating a period often considered marginal. The final chapter describes how the Middle Ages acquired an undeserved reputation as an age of superstition, barbarism, and unreason.

The Byzantine Empire, the expansion of Islam, the German Kingdoms, the spread of Judaism, and the coming of the Anglo-Saxons are among the topics explored in a detailed study of the early Middle Ages.

As this 1997 study shows, it is no mere coincidence that the origins of modern science and the modern university occurred simultaneously in Western Europe during the late Middle Ages.

The late Michael Grant had a long and widely varied academic career and was a noted author of popular histories of the ancient and medieval world. This one, unfortunately, is not one of his more successful efforts. But much of the blame for that must go to the unknown designer of the book. His narrative is a good, nontechnical survey of the period from the deposition of Romulus Augustulus, last emperor in the West, in 476 to the death of Charles the Great in 814. That's as good as definition of "early medieval Europe" as any, but the author goes farther afield, including sections on the rise and expansion of Islam, the Jews in Europe and Asia, a special section on Britain, and the Slavs, Turks, Huns, and even China during those same years. For those latter cultures, which have little if any connection with Europe, the time division makes no sense, but I can't fault Grant's desire to broaden his readers' awareness of the global context.

However, reading this book is a good deal more difficult than it ought to be. There are multiple illustrations on nearly every page, but they're scattered about. The captions may be split by the image itself, or it may be isolated on the other side of the page, or several of them may be lumped together -- there's no consistency and locating the caption that goes with a particular illustration takes far longer than it should. Also, the continuing narrative may be split into several chunks on the page, separated by oddly place illustrations, so there's a lot of starting and stopping and casting about if you're trying to read a chapter straight through. The text is pretty good, and the many illustrations are informative, but the organization of the whole is abysmal.
