This book discusses a group of themes designed to highlight how Muslims reacted to the alien presence of the Crusaders in the heart of traditional Muslim territory. Ideological concerns are examined and the importance of the jihad is assessed in the context of the gradual recovery of the Holy Land and the expulsion of the Crusaders.^Two chapters are devoted to an analysis of warfare& -arms, battles, sieges, fortifications& -on the basis of written sources and extant works of art, and the neglected aspect of the navy is brought into prominence.

Accordingly, as a deliberate policy, an attempt is made here to view the phenomenon
