Reviews

"Attractive to anyone interested in the entire scope of the Arthurian tradition. In revising the original edition, the authors have wisely chosen to enhance rather than change. The result is that it is even more useful, specially for students, than the first edition." -- Arthuriana

"A very attractive book. [It] will be a welcome addition to both library and classroom. As a companion to the more ambitious New Arthurian Encyclopedia, the handbook will prove useful to both beginning Arthurian scholars, in search of a novel research path, and to literature and history teachers trying to construct interdisciplinary Arthurian courses. It has, as they say, a little something for everyone." -- The Medieval Review

"The Arthurian Handbook is the reference resource book for students of the Arthurian mythos…fascinating volume…fully updated chronology and many fine new illustrations." -- Wisconsin Bookwatch

"Praise for the previous edition: The ultimate reference on the subject." -- AB Bookman's Weekly

"Carefully edited and produced…belongs in every Arthurian library." -- Quondam et Futurus

"A distinct achievement…a fine reference work." -- Speculum
