"Tightly focused and well organized, this welcome volume sheds new light upon an important medieval region and provides a fresh understanding of the stimulating theme of human society and its interaction with the natural world. The individual contributors to this collection represent a stellar international assembly of experts. Original scholarship is combined with mature syntheses to ensure that specialist readers, scholars of other times and places who focus on similar interests, and the generalist will all be enriched by reading these contributions. This is a balanced and dispassionate treatment of a region often approached in the past with the ire and passion of particularist and national interests. The range of approaches reflected in this book is impressive: archaeology, environmental study, disease in animals and humans, modernization, and colonization are all topics that seamlessly complement traditional historical approaches. Reflecting an impressively high standard of scholarship, these studies are sure to stimulate further productive research." -Paul Knoll, University of Southern California
