Dear Readers,

The following books have been received and are available to qualified scholars for review (reviewers should have received a doctoral degree or the equivalent). Reviews of titles on this list will be expected by the end of August, and must be submitted by e-mail.

We have changed our procedures for submitting requests for reviews; only responses received in the new system will be considered. We hope that this will be easier both for you and for us. If you are interested in reviewing one of these books, please fill out our online form:

http://tinyurl.com/TMRmar2015

We request that you not ask to be considered as a reviewer for more than TWO titles.

Please be aware that compiling and sorting through requests may take several weeks; we appreciate your patience and understanding. Thank you for your support of the The Medieval Review.

Sincerely yours,

The TMR Editors
