Product Description

Review

'Ryder has filled a notable gap in the literature with his masterly account of Alfonso's life. Out of a vast mass of unpublished sources he has crafted a clear, concise and fluent narrative.' Times Literary Supplement

`Alan Ryder's, Alfonso the Magnanimous will establish itself as the standard biography of this ambitious and grandiose ruler of Aragon, Naples, Sicily and a good many other kingdoms.' Journal of Medieval History

'Ryder's biography ... is an important and stimulating study' Christopher F. Black, History, February 1992

'Ryder's biogrqaphy, based on extensive archival work, notably in Barcelona and Palermo, with some valuable quotations from Alfonso's communications, is an important and stimulating study' Christopher F. Black, University of Glasgow, History Feb '92

'An ambitious and well-documented cvolume which offers the first really complete biography of Alfonso V of Aragon.'British Bulletin of Publications

'Professor Ryder has given us a full-scale study of Alfonso in the context of Italian politics, One of the great strengths of this immensely readable and scholarly book is the way in which it shows the nature of the Aragonese contribution to the sixteenth-century Spanish monarchy.'J.R.L. Highfield. Merton College, Oxford. EHR Feb '94
