Patrick J. Geary is Professor in the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University.Review:
Instructors of medieval history are fortunate to have at their disposal a new edition of the best selection of medieval primary courses in English translation available today. Like its predecessors, this fourth edition fulfills the promise expressed in the author's preface: to introduce us and our students to documents representing a great variety of genres, subjects, and places throughout medieval Europe and to present those documents in their entirety or in substantial portions. The documents allow us, the teachers, and more importantly, our students, the freedom to read in depth, select, and analyze—to practice history at its best, right in the classroom. (Piotr Gorecki, University of California, Riverside)
Geary's careful and wise selection of texts in his reader provides the best balance between range and depth necessary for a successful source book. Students are introduced to the richness of medieval evidence and can engage with the personalities who produced it in a way that encourages further study and reflection on the Middle Ages. (Nicholas Everett, University of Toronto)
Provides an excellent selection of complete texts or substantial extracts from key primary sources, helpfully grouped thematically and illustrating many current issues in modern historical study... an invaluable introduction. (Rosamund McKitterick, Newnham College, University of Cambridge)
The best collection of medieval documents in print. (A.J. Andrea, University of Vermont)
Readings in Medieval History, Fourth Edition is probably the best collection of primary source readings available. The documents are well-chosen, they are generally accessible to students, and—most important of all—the selections are long and meaty enough that the students can really sink their teeth into them. (Jonathan Conant, Brown University)
