Edward D. English is Executive Director of Medieval Studies and Associate Professor of History at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is finishing the first of two volumes on the society and politics of Siena in the fourteenth century. His other publications include Enterprise and Liability in Sienese Banking, 1230-1350 (1988) and The Encyclopedia of the Medieval World, 2 volumes (2005).
"Nonetheless, this Companion is an excellent manual for those who have never (or only partially) studied medieval history, as it provides clear outlines of extremely complex issues, a thought-provoking insight into historiographical and methodological trends, as well as an extremely rich bibliography to assist further investigation." (English Historical Review, 1 January 2013)"This is a great legacy--not one of reaction or anachronism--and we should be proud to sit upon the shoulders of such giants and to be able to survey so much of a landscape that they helped map out." (The Medieval Review, September 2010)
