Inhaltsangabe: The Crusades: A History is a comprehensive, single-volume history of the Crusades, from their beginnings in the eleventh century through to their decline and eventual ending at the close of the eighteenth century. As well as providing an account of the major Crusades, the book describes the organization of a Crusade, the experience of crusading and the Crusaders themselves.
In a new preface and afterword, 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. The book concludes with a challenge to a historiographical tradition that has often been fraught with controversy.
In a fully revised second edition, this remains the standard and authoritative account of the fascinating history of the Crusades.
Inhaltsangabe: This comprehensive, single-volume history of the Crusades by one of the foremost scholars on the subject has now been fully revised for a second edition. Riley-Smith's account not only re-lives the major historical events, but also looks at the background to the crusading movement, its organisation and the experiences of the crusaders who took part in the holy war defending Christendom against its enemies, all of which is explained clearly and authoritatively. In his new preface and afterword Jonathan Riley-Smith reviews the current healthy status of crusader studies and recent changes in direction.
