Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With such value-added features, fine content, and high usability, this reference book would be a welcome addition to academic and large public libraries." - Booklist

"The most comprehensive guide available to the Wars of the Roses." - Lawrence Looks at Books

Booknews
Not a general overview of 15th-century England, but a specialized reference to the series of conflicts in English politics and society that later came to be known as the Wars of the Roses. American historian Wagner strives to provide general students with clear, concise, and basic descriptions and definitions of people, events, and relevant terms. The articles can be used to answer quick questions or as the beginning of research for a paper; there is extensive cross- referencing, and the bibliographies are topic-specific. The illustrations are monochrome. An e-book, 1-57607-585-3, is available on the Web. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
