Book Description

September 28, 1999 0521625661 978-0521625661
This book presents a concise, general history of the crusades--whose chief goal was the liberation and preservation of the "holy places" of the Middle East--from the first calls to arms in the later eleventh century to the fall of the last crusader strongholds in Syria and Palestine in 1291. Written by one of the world's great crusader historians, this unique work is the distillation of over forty years' research and contemplation, and the ideal introductory textbook for all students of the crusades.

Editorial Reviews


"[an] erudite, illuminating and Richard's magisterial account deserves a place on the shelves of all who teach the Crusdaes or write about them." Historian

"Jean Richard's work deserves to be much better known in the English-speaking world. Hist acute appreciation for hte religious as well as economic motives of the Crusaders makes his most recent book especially important." Christian Century
