Frederick II, Paperback (February 2002)» View all books by David Abulafia
This biography overturns the myths and reveals Frederick II as neither the Beast of the Apocalypse nor the Universal Hero adopted by pre-Nazi Germany. Instead we are shown a man very much of his time, an emperor whose reign coincided with the great turning-points of the high Middle Ages.
UK Kirkus Review » The Mediterranean today can seem like a barrier between Europe and Africa, not least to asylum-seekers risking their lives to cross the sea in open boats. However, for centuries it has been a place where cultures meet and mingle, and it is this aspect that forms the theme of this beautifully-illustrated book, which traces Mediterranean history from earliest times to the present day. The volume is introduced by an historical overview and a chapter on the environment. Chronological chapters describe the political history of the region, interspersed with essays setting these events in their social and economic context. Each chapter is written by a specialist in their field, and the whole is edited and introduced by David Abulafia, a historian of medieval Sicily. Presented in an attractive format, the book packed with colour photographs, making it a visually appealing as well as a fascinating read. It will delight anyone with an interest in the Mediterranean.(Kirkus UK)
