9781409437536: Shipping, Trade and Crusade in the Medieval Mediterranean: Studies in Honour of John Pryor

The cutting-edge papers in this collection reflect the wide areas to which John Pryor has made significant contributions in the course of his scholarly career. They are written by some of the world's most distinguished practitioners in the fields of Crusading history and the maritime history of the medieval Mediterranean. His colleagues, students and friends discuss questions including ship construction in the fourth and fifteenth centuries, navigation and harbourage in the eastern Mediterranean, trade in Fatimid Egypt and along the Iberian Peninsula, military and social issues arising among the crusaders during field campaigns, and wider aspects of medieval warfare. All those with an interest in any of these subjects, whether students or specialists, will need to consult this book.

Review:

'... a splendid Festschrift, presenting engaging articles that connect admirably well to each other and to the volume's themes. The articles highlighted here suggest the consistent richness of this work. This valuable, informative, and stimulating book fittingly honors Professor John Pryor, and additionally, it greatly enriches our understanding of shipping, trade, and crusade in the medieval Mediterranean world.' The Historian 'Altogether, this is a rich volume with many excellent studies and sometimes even important editions of texts. As difficult it sometimes proves to be to create a festschrift with inner, thematic cohesion, this one appears to have achieved that goal quite impressively... ' Mediaevistik '... [a] satisfactory collection. For students of Mediterranean commerce and cultural exchange in the central Middle Ages, it is extremely valuable, but anyone interested in medieval maritime history will find something of interest.' The Northern Mariner '... high scholarly value...' The Mariner's Mirror '... the quality of many of these studies is very high. Kedar's work on harbour chains, for example, will doubtless become a crucial point of reference for future work on this subject. Other studies develop fascinating avenues in interdisciplinary research or draw attention to relatively neglected source materials.' History '... all the contributions to this volume are useful, important and make a valuable contribution to their many different subjects. This, therefore, is a volume that can be read with great profit not just by maritime historians but by medievalists more widely. The editors are to be congratulated on putting such a useful collection together.' International Journal of Maritime History '... the book is a valuable new resource for scholars and students of medieval maritime history...' Journal of Transport History 'This book achieves its aim in graciously honoring John Pryor, illustrating all aspects associated with his own research by his peer group.' Speculum '...this volume represents a significant addition to the burgeoning corpus of research on the Medieval Mediterranean. In showcasing the innovative methodological, collaborative and interdisciplinary skills required to understand the Medieval Mediterranean fully, it also makes its own contribution as a general model for excellent scholarly practice.' Al-Masaq
