9780192801340: A History of the Vikings
Review:

What a superb book this is! Wise, well-informed, judicious and infinitely readable. ( Magnus Magnusson, Scotsman)

an utterly splendid book, quite the most brilliantly written, balanced and explanative general work on the Vikings ever to appear in English or...in any language. ( Erik Wahlgren, Scandinavian Studies)

A highly readable history. ( Oxford Time)

no better book on the Vikings has ever been written, and it is one which every educated person with any interest in history should know about ... Readers will be delighted to discover the eloquent and sparkling prose of a natural Welsh bard and storyteller who was one of the shining lights of University College, Cardiff. The man writes beautifully. There are not many history books one can pick up and start reading anywhere just for the sheer enjoyment of literary craftsmanship and even fewer as authoritative as this. ( Lloyds List 13/04/1994)

Review:

"Excellent revision and useful for both graduates and undergraduates."--Benjamin T. Hudson, Pennsylvania State University"In this revised edition of his 1968 volume, hailed as the definitive study of the three hundred years during which Scandinavians changed the face of medieval Europe, Jones has updated his text to incorporate the latest scholarly findings from both Europe and North America."--The PhiladelphiaInquirer"Excellent survey - in-depth and well balanced."--Cassandra Potts, Middlebury College

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 2nd Revised edition. 193 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. An utterly splendid book, quite the most brilliantly written, balanced, and explanative general work on the Vikings ever to appear in English or in any language. Scandinavian Studies The subject of this book is the Viking realms, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, their civilization and culture, and their many sided achievements at home and abroad. A highly readable narrative follows the development of these Northern peoples - the Nordmenn - from their origins and the legendary pre-history to the military triumphs of Canute and the defeat of Harald Hardradi at Stamford Bridge in 1066, which symbolically ended the Viking age. The book recounts the Vikings exploits in war, trade, and colonization: the assault on Western Christendom; the trading and military ventures to the Slav and Muslim worlds and to Byzantium; and the western voyages of discovery and settlement to Greenland, Iceland, and America. Numerous photographs, maps, and drawings contribute to Gwyn Jones s rounded portrait of Viking civilization and vividly evoke the importance in their culture of religion, art, and seafaring.
