Booknews

This pithy volume provides a thorough treatment of the complexities of Norman Sicily under Roger II, relying on a comprehensive selection of scholarship through the year 2000. Houben (medieval history, Universit<'a> degli Studi di Lecce, Italy) provides background history on this unusual political state and a full chapter on art and architecture. The history of Roger's rule, which makes up the bulk of the volume, is set within the larger context of Mediterranean politics and culture. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
