He re-places Catalan chroniclers in both their local and their European context, and he analyzes their texts with literary skills as well as historical ones.

He demonstrates their varied rhetorical styles and strategies. This is a brilliant and suggestive book about how the past has been reported and enshrined. A superb work.
