Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is unquestionably magisterial ... produced with truly extraordinary accuracy."
The Catholic Historical Review

"This time Cambridge has come as close as possible to realizing the ambitious and unachieved standards of the orignal series. Ten years in the making, and subject to all the disappointments, delays, contributor drop-outs, their replacements, and intimations and demonstrations of mortality that necessarily plague such projects, these volumes stand up well to the high demands of both contemporary scholarship and readership." - The International History Review Edward Peters, University of Pennsylvania
