Abstract

journal of world history, march 2013 reaches the final chapter, the appropriateness of the subtitle of Foot's biography, "The First King of England," has been unquestionably established, but here Foot analyzes the aptness of the legend on Æthelstan's coinage, rex totius Britanniae ("king of all Britain"), concluding that "Æthelstan was, indeed, a British monarch" (p. 226). Foot's biography of Æthelstan, the first king of England, king of all Britain, deserves a wide audience. The book is a significant contribution to the scholarship of early medieval Britain and will greatly influence the work of those who study the period. The monograph is also highly readable: it is accessible to the keen nonspecialist and is a strong example of biographical methodology. tracey-anne cooper St. John's University The Czech Reader: History, Culture, and Politics.
