About this book

Considering a wide array of sources, this book reveals the tenacity with which Alfonso II (1162-1196) and his son Peter II (1196-1213) of the Crown of Aragon forged a tighter Mediterranean regional network and augmented their regional success.

Reviews

'The present work provides an excellent overview of Hispanic international policy and the forces that drove it. Jenkins shows Peter II's failures in the Midi to be a result of personal flaws rather than policy miscalculations. The book has a rich bibliography and a clear writing style. Summing up: Recommended.' - CHOICE

"In this volume, Ernest E. Jenkins evinces great enthusiasm for the burgeoning field of Mediterranean studies, and also makes clear his intention to contribute to it . . . Jenkins has succeeded in making a useful contribution to both the field of Mediterranean studies and the history of the medieval Crown of Aragon." - The Medieval Review
