An interest in the middle ages often brings the non-specialist reader up short against a word or term which is not understood or only imperfectly understood. This dictionary is intended to put an end to all that: it has been designed to be of real help to general readers and specialists alike. The dictionary contains some 3,400 terms as headwords, ranging from the legal and ecclesiastic to the more prosaic words of daily life. Latin was the language of the church, law and government, and many Latin terms illustrated here are frequently found in modern books of history of the period; similarly, the precise meaning of Old English and Middle English terms may elude today's reader: this dictionary endeavours to provide clarity. In addition to definition, etymologies of many words are given, in the belief that knowing the origin and evolution of a word gives a better understanding. There are also examples of medieval terms and phrases still in use today, a further aid to clarifying meaning. CHRISTOPHER COREDON has also compiled the Dictionary of Cybernyms. Dr ANN WILLIAMS, historical consultant on the project, was until her retirement Senior Lecturer in medieval history at the Polytechnic of North London.

Elliot Kalbs work is beyond excellent. He thinks in story lines and uses numbers and history to make compelling and often original points. --Bob Costas



When the NBA released its supposedly authoritative list of the top 50 players, basketball fans everywhere begged to differ. In Whos Better, Whos Best? Elliot Kalb, known to TV viewers as ABCs Mr. Stats, enters the fray.



The ultimate NBA historian and authority in armchair athletes disputes, Kalb interweaves numbers, facts, and anecdotes to flesh out the central question in every basketball fans mind: Whos the best? His choices are provocative (Michael Jordan isnt #1; hes not even #2), framed by discussions with unorthodox sources and respected NBA experts, players, and coaches.



A tremendously satisfying book for anyone hungry for statistics and debate, this is the ultimate behind-the-numbers story of the best of the NBA.
