Abstract

222 Reviews as a whole. The discussion presented is balanced, and the editors succeed in placing Jones's work within a historiographical context. Part II, `Selected Papers by G. J. R. Jones', as the heading again describes, presents some of Jones's published papers. Several of these are quite rare and difficult to obtain ­ such as those only previously available in conference proceedings ­ so readers interested in his work will find Part II a valuable resource. Others are quite easily obtainable and so it was not essential that they were included in this volume. Despite this, the articles included by Barnwell and Roberts are well chosen for the overview of the development of Jones's work they provide the reader. The book does not contain anything particularly new, but then it does not need to, as this is far from its purpose and aims. The idea of bringing together the work of a single scholar along with a discussion of his work is a great one. Jones himself never brought his arguments together into a single volume, but the editors have been successful in doing so. While the editors suggest that the volume is targeted towards younger scholars with
