1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jesse Rouse on March 10, 2007
Format: Paperback
This history of the crusades was published in the late 19th century, so in places it is very outdated. However, it is still worth looking at for two reasons. First, though incorrect in places, it is still mostly accurate and provides far more detail than the average book about the crusades. These are long volumes (upwards of 800 pages each), so they do not skimp on the details.

Second, Michaud's books provides us with a good indication of how people in the 19th century viewed the crusades. You will notice that the crusades were seen in a (slightly) more favorable light than they are today. The idea of cultural equality was not nearly as prevelant as it is today, and Muslims were still largely unknown by the West. This made the crusades seem less objectionable to Westerners of the period. Michaud provides us with a glimpse of the feelings of the people of his time period, making these books important both for what it says about the crusades and what it says about people of the late 19th century. However, if you want a really accurate history of the crusades, you should probably check out Runciman's history, as it is far more accurate.
