From Booklist:

Salem Press continues its revised and expanded Great Lives series with a set concentrating on the Middle Ages. It is preceded by Great Lives from History: The Ancient World, Prehistory-476 C.E. (both 2004). The Middle Ages volumes focus on the people throughout the world from after the Fall of Rome, in 476 C.E., to 1453. Coverage is worldwide. A companion set, Great Events from History: The Middle Ages, covers events from the same period.

Entries are arranged alphabetically. Each entry begins with ready-reference information, followed by a summary of the person's life, a paragraph or two on "Significance," a list of further readings, and cross-references to entries both within the set and within the companion set. Additional content includes11 maps of the medieval world and indexes by category, location, personage, and subject.

Great Lives is derived from the 10-volume Dictionary of World Biography (1998-1999), which was a revision of Great Lives from History (1987-1995). Of the 356 essays in lives, a mere 59 are new. The articles range from three to six pages and include such individuals as Thomas Aquinas, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and Muhammad. Bibliographies have been updated, and more than 100 regnal and dynastic tables have been added. Since little of the content is new, libraries where budgets are tight and Dictionary of World Biography is already owned might want to pass this up. Susanna Eng
