The Subject of Violence: The Song of Roland and the Birth of the State

Proposes a provocative new reading of the medieval French Song of Roland and its role in changing a world of violent independent warriors into the more contemporary world of citizens subjugated to the state. A study of signal importance to literary and historical scholarship of the Song and of the birth of modern Europe.
