Vitality and change marked twelfth- and thirteenth-century medieval Mediterranean society.  Many sought to capitalize upon resurgences in economic success, political intrigue, and social cohesion.  Alfonso II (1162-1196) and his son Peter II (1196-1213) of the Crown of Aragon worked diligently to augment their regional success.  Yet the sources relating the internal workings of these developments are, by themselves, insufficient for appreciating the scope and potential of these opportunities.  Considering a wide array of sources reveals the tenacity with which Alfonso II and Peter II forged a tighter Mediterranean regional network ready to respond to urgent needs and enduring concerns.

Editorial Reviews

'The present work provides an excellent overview of Hispanic international policy and the forces that drove it. Jenkins shows Peter II's failures in the Midi to be a result of personal flaws rather than policy miscalculations. The book has a rich bibliography and a clear writing style. Summing up: Recommended.' - CHOICE "In this volume, Ernest E. Jenkins evinces great enthusiasm for the burgeoning field of Mediterranean studies, and also makes clear his intention to contribute to it . . . Jenkins has succeeded in making a useful contribution to both the field of Mediterranean studies and the history of the medieval Crown of Aragon." - The Medieval Review
