Christians and Jews in Angevin England now in paperback
Longtime readers of this blog will remember that I blogged the conference "York 1190: Jews and Others in the Wake of Massacre" back in the day. You can read a version of my conference closing paper here.
The gathering yielded an excellent book edited by the wonderful conference organizers, Sarah Rees Jones and Sethina Watson: Christians and Jews in Angevin England: The York Massacre of 1190, Narratives and Contexts. The book is now in affordable paperback ... and for blog readers, available at a reduced rate. See the attached image, which contains a code (16018) that provides 25% discount on the book until March 31, 2016. Having read the book in its entirety as well as participated in the gathering that generated the volume, I can tell you that it's a text anyone who works on medieval England, or who is interested in the uneven relations of power and desire that both bind and vex diverse communities, will want to read.
