History of monasticism

Can anyone recommend a good history of monasticism?

Ideally, I'd like to see a general, well-researched history that addresses monasticism in both the Eastern and Western Churches.

I realize such a thing might not exist, however, so if you know good histories of particular Orders, or focussing on the Roman Catholic or the Orthodox Churches, I would appreciate hearing about them.
