Norman Stone Castles, The British Isles 1066-1216

Christopher Gravett
Adam Hook
64 pages with illustrations by Adam Hook. The illustrations are the only reason to buy the book. Gravett was at the Royal Armouries and his view of castles seems to be they were large immovable suits of armor. He does not seem to be aware of the numerous and generally much more significant administrative and residential functions of castles not does he him seem to have read any of the scholarship of the last 30-40 years, he certainly does not reference such texts.
