The brilliant and erratic Plantagenets from Anjou ruled England and most of western France from 1154 to 1216. The dramatic lives of Henry II, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Richard Lionheart, John Lackland, and their kin are here set forth in chronological selections from 14 contemporary writers; their stories are decorated with rich illustrations and short topical essays by modern British historians. Advanced students of the Middle Ages will relish the appearance in English of previously untranslated texts but find the collateral essays rather simple; general readers may think the unexplicated chronicles occasionally perplexing. Public libraries with patron interest in English history will find the pictures alone worth the reasonable price of this volume. Richard C. Hoffmann, History Dept., York Univ., North York, Ontario
