From Library Journal:

Interest in things Celtic has grown in the last generation, with an increasingly political aspect, for example in the establishment of a Scottish Parliament and the enhanced status granted to the Welsh language. The claims of the Celtic nations often stem from medieval and earlier events, many of which are poorly documented. King, a writer, teacher, and speaker of Cornish, a Celtic language revived in this century, has written a readable and informative introduction to the Celtic kingdoms. He gives clear descriptions of distant and complicated periods and also discusses major mythological or semihistorical figures like Cuhullain and King Arthur. Most titles in the field cover a specific area, but King provides a more general survey, discussing not only Ireland, Scotland, and Wales but Brittany and Cornwall as well. The book includes helpful maps, illustrations, and reasonable notes for a general work, plus several lists, such as the Irish High Kings and principal Scottish clans. Highly recommended for Celtic collections.ACharles V. Cowling, Drake Memorial Lib., Brockport, NY
