The appearance of this volume completes the publication of The New Cambridge Medieval History (earlier vols., CH, Apr'96, 33-4676; Jan'99, 36-2975; May'00, 37-5311; Feb'01, 38-3541). It is a splendid factual and interpretive reference for the period covered. There are 29 essays authored by 23 contributors, all scholar experts in their fields. Two chapters, on Jews and on the northern seas, extend beyond the two-century focus of the volume. The subjects include the political changes in the transition from late Roman antiquity to the medieval era, religious and cultural developments in the Mediterranean area, art and architecture, kings and kingship, money and coinage, the Celtic world, and much more. Maps and illustrations are scattered throughout, and a list of primary sources is included. Each chapter has an extensive bibliography to assist further research, and the volume is supported by a thorough index. Every academic library should have the entire New Cambridge History in its reference collection. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. A. C.
