The Monstrous Races in Medieval Art and Thought (Medieval Studies) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

During the Middle Ages, travelers in Africa and Asia reported that "monstrous races" thrived beyond the boundaries of the known world. John B. Friedman offers an introspective look at these races and their interaction with Western art, literature, and philosophy.

Book News Annotation:

Friedman (English, Kent State U.) calls them monstrous because they differ in physical appearance and social practices from whoever was describing them. He finds them lurking in , populating the outermost edges of world maps, and resting in neat frames on pages of illustrated encyclopedias. He has made corrections to the 1981 cloth edition and updated the bibliography.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
