"...a valuable reference book for students engaged in medieval studies at honours or postgraduate level seeking in-depth information on sources for essays and theses. It is useful for teachers and lecturers of medieval history (like me) striving to keep upto-date with the state of the discipline. Many of the essays would also be of interest to intelligent 'general readers' who wish to extend their knowledge of the medieval world."
"Nonetheless, this Companion is an excellent manual for those who have never (or only partially) studied medieval history, as it provides clear outlines of extremely complex issues, a thought-provoking insight into historiographical and methodological trends, as well as an extremely rich bibliography to assist further investigation."
'A Companion to the Medieval World will be of greatvalue for instructors who want to pull their own thoughts togetherand to have a model for a concise explication of complicatedtopics. It will also bring home to students and general readersthat there is no "party line"
