“Knight is a substantial cross between a deep, informational exploration of knighthood in 1200-1600 England and a rich, pictorial coffee table book on the same subject. Although in paperback edition, this is a heavy volume that features mostly black and white photography, along with a few full color photos of knighthood artifacts and paintings. These graphics are paired with detailed excursions into customs, weaponry, social systems, laws, and practices. This information is divided into a few main epochs or eras spanning, in total, four centuries (1200 to 1600 CE).
Knight is simply exhaustive, and the supporting graphics are equally helpful. This is a great read for anyone interested in this specialized subject area of English history and will appeal to all readers, regardless of age or reading ability. It serves as an excellent academic reference for children and adults interested in learning more about this facet of one European country’s culture and history.” -Allena Tapia, San Francisco Book Review (March 2010)
