This original and authoritative text reveals how chivalry was part of the problem of violence in medieval Europe, not merely its solution. The ideal was to internalize restraint in knights, but a close reading of chivalric literature shows chivalry also praised heroic violence by knights. This
fascinating book lays bare the conflicts and paradoxes surrounding the concept of chivalry in medieval Europe.

The ambiguities of the chivalry and the tensions that it creates in a civil society are fruitfully explored in Richard W. Kaeuper's Chivalry and Violence in Medieval Europe
Kaeuper's argument is not only convincing, but his presentation of the tensions throughout is quite captivating
The book is fun to read, full of ideas and thought provoking
