Críticas:


"Fascinating...a comprehensive history of the wars."--History Today


"In 1095, Pope Urban II granted absolutions to whomever would reclaim the Holy Land for Christendom. With that assurance began two centuries of Crusades, and the story...is well treated in this interpretation of the movement to take up the cross."--Booklist


"In a series of finely crafted and admirably succinct essays, the contributors unravel a number of important medieval political and religious themes. This comprehensive approach adds a great deal to the book's interest and presents some of the best insights of modern Crusading scholarship....Excellent."--Tablet


"The great merit of Professor Riley-Smith's book is to follow the story down to the present day."--Church Times


"In 1095 Pope Urban II granted absolutions to whomever would reclaim the Holy Land for Christendom. With that assurance began two centuries of Crusades, and the story, in contemporary chronicles, artwork, and castellated ruins, is well treated in this interpretation of the movement to take up the cross."--Booklist


Críticas:

this volume is a valuable overview of the subject ... this book is not aimed primarily at the historian of war. However, it contains much of value for anyone interested in the organisation and practice of warfare in the medieval period. ( Matthew Bennett, War in History, 2000 7 (3).)

makes the results of the recent academic study of the Crusades accessible to a wide section of the general public and succeeds in conveying that this is a living and developing subject, which has far from exhausted its potential. ( THES)
