From Library Journal:

In this general overview, edited by a leading scholar in the field, Scandinavian history and expansion from circa 750 to 1150 C.E. are explored thematically. The book's four sections cover the Vikings' origins, Viking-age Scandinavia, overseas interactions, and the end of the Viking world. The thematic organization creates confusion, often forcing one to jump centuries within a paragraph. Substandard research-e.g., King Harald Fairhair is referred to as Harald Finehair-casts doubt on the book's credibility, and the writing style can be trite ("The Vikings were a people who had great respect for the law-though that is not how they are usually thought of today"). Many superior books, such as Donald Logan's The Vikings in History (Hutchinson, 1983), Else Roesdahl's The Vikings (Allen Lane, 1987), and editor Graham-Campbell's The Viking World (Ticknor & Fields, 1980), exist for general readers.
