The second volume of "A History of Private Life" contains much rich and colourful detail culled from a considerable variety of sources. This "secret epic" aims to construct a vivid picture of peasant and patrician life in different places in the 11th to the 15th centuries.
Georges Duby, a member of the Academie Francaise, is Professor of Medieval History at the College de France. Arthur Goldhammer received the French-American Translation Prize in 1990 for his translation of A Critical Dictionary of the French Revolution.
