EXPLORING THE WORLD OF J.R.R. TOLKIEN

Dr. Christopher A. Snyder, Professor of European History and Director of the Honors Program at Marymount University, explores how the legendary author’s knowledge and love of medieval history, lore, art, archeology and literature inspired him to create Middle Earth.  This richly illustrated volume will be published to coincide with New Line Cinema’s release of the first of two Tolkien-based films, one based on THE HOBBIT, and the other a prequel to the LORD OF THE RINGS.  (Sterling Publishers, 2012)
