Whereas translations of chronicles or relatively obscure texts are often presented in a way which discourages the non-specialist reader, Carey, himself a historian rather than a language specialist, has succeeded in making his Babad accessible and attractive.The book is a pleasure to read, a tribute to the MBRAS. It is well designed, with a good clear text, useful maps and excellent illustrations. The English translation is clear and smooth, if not poetic. It tells a story of growing tension, dramatic incident and confrontation. Events and personalities emerge within a clear narrative. Summing up, it must be said that this is an exemplary annotated translation. Introduction, translation and notes are clear and informative, the bibliography impressive and the index comprehensive."
