Editorial Reviews

`the publication of this new edition of one of his great histories long available only in nineteenth-century editions and translations, albeit excellent ones for their times, is particularly a reason for rejoicing because it is the work of a trio of distinguised scholars ... this is not aslavish translation, but one set in good modern prose, an improvement, at least for modern readers, over the ninteenth-century versions ... for the reader who is willing to look up unfamiliar individuals and who is willing to read William of Malmesbury's text on its own terms, this edition is anapproachable place to start to read William's wonderful, ironic work of history.'Leah Shopkow, The Medieval Review
