Toot! Toot!

We interrupt any attempts at being serious for some serious own-horn-tooting.

My co-edited collection of essays, The Legend of Charlemagne in the Middle Ages: Power, Faith, and Crusade, is now out (or will be very, very soon). I'm really tremendously proud of it and not just because it's the first English-language book specifically on the Charlemagne legend in the Middle Ages. It's also got essays of really extraordinary quality from both established scholars and real up-and-comers: Paul Dutton, Jay Rubenstein, Tom Noble, Dan Callahan, Elizabeth Pastan, Wendy Hoofnagle, Anne Latowsky, and Jace Stuckey (my co-editor). Take a look and buy it (please) if you're so inclined.

I should have read this before teaching Crusade and Jihad this term.

Congrats, Matthew!

How did you like working with Palgrave? A colleague at another uni & I are thinking about co-editing a volume.

Notorious,

Generally, it was a good experience. There was a brief period when Palgrave went through about 3 editorial assistants and so nobody knew what was going on or would answer my emails. That sucked. But once the position was settled, things went quite smoothly.
