The Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages works just like any other encyclopedia or dictionary: if you want to look something up, just turn to the corresponding letter. This book has it all, as well as facts and figures up the wazoo. And if you’ve ever thought about competing on Jeopardy and didn’t know which source to turn to and study for the Middle Ages, well here’s your answer.
