Editorial Reviews

“The Northern Lands is a learned work, and its premises are thought-provoking, but it is not quite the synthesis that readers might expect.”  (English Historical Review, 2012)

"Nicholas's scholarly range in this work is impressive." (Alpata, Spring 2010)

"The frequent citations to an extensive bibliography make this a valuable reference and resource for collections in English history or other national surveys." (CHOICE, September 2009)

"Well worth reading, and has to be acknowledged as a significant contribution to the writings on northern European history." (The Medieval Review, February 2010)
