In his autobiography, Georges Duby reflects on a career that has led him to be called one of the most distinguished historians in the Western world. Duby's work is rich and varied, encompassing economic history, social history, the history of mentalitis, art history, microhistory, urban history, the history of women and sexuality, and, most recently, the Church's influence on feudal society. This book is both a memoir of one of this century's great scholars and a history of the French historical school since the mid-twentieth century.

"(Duby's) book -- which has been well translated, annotated, and indexed for English readers -- (reveals) enough of his career, work, and intellectual style to explain to a general readership why his voice is utterly distinctive in the field of medieval history, why his writings in French and in translation have attracted such a wide following, and why the work . . . has profoundly influenced many historians". -- Stephen D. White, Bryn Mawr Reviews

"(Duby) conveys the unfailing freshness and excitement of research among the parchment books and rolls, the satisfaction that comes from restoring the dead to memory, and the importance of prodigious reading, discipline, modesty, and imagination to success in the loneliest metier". -- Virginia Quarterly
