This lively, comprehensive history provides a wealth of fascinating detail about the Crusades and the politics and personalities behind them. This new edition includes revisions throughout as well as a new Preface and Afterword in which Jonathan Riley-Smith surveys recent developments in the field and examines responses to the Crusades in different periods, from the Romantics to the Islamic world today, making this the standard and authoritative account of the Crusades for years to come.
From reviews of the first edition:
"Everything is here: the crusades to the Holy Land, and against the Albigensians, the Moors, the pagans in Eastern Europe, the Turks, and the enemies of the popes. Riley-Smith writes a beautiful, lucid prose, . . . [and his book] is packed with facts and action."-Choice

"A concise, clearly written synthesis . . . by one of the leading historians of the crusading movement. "-Robert S. Gottfried,Historian


"A lively and flowing narrative [with] an enormous cast of characters that is not a mere catalog but a history. . . . A remarkable achievement."-Thomas E. Morrissey,Church History


"Superb."-Reuven S. Avi-Yonah,Speculum


"A first-rate one-volume survey of the Crusading movement from 1074 . . . to 1798."-Southwest Catholic
