Summaries and Reviews
Summary
A history of the crusades examines the conflicts between and within the major religions, and describes in detail the various historical campaigns, complete with color illustrations and informational sidebars.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
An important, richly illustrated account of the struggle between Christianity and Islam in the Near East, and an essential guide to understanding many modern-day conflicts, from the Balkans and Lebanon to Palestine and the War on Terror

". . . the ideal volume for anyone with a desire to know more about the struggle between Christianity and Islam in the Near East. . . . Beautifully illustrated, this informative guide to the major Crusades not only clearly defines the conflict and traces the individual campaigns but also places in context the historical roots of the 21st century tensions between Islam and the West."
---Monterey County Herald

"The book is a model of organization and pertinent illustration, with maps, sidebars, a chronology and an accessible bibliography. Given so fine and comprehensive an introduction, readers are likely to turn to the classic prose narratives, both Christian and Islamic. They will also have a new appreciation of the current Christian-Islamic conflict and its many roots."
---ForeWord

"[Crusades] is attractively illustrated and has a great number of boxes and sidebars offering a more detailed examination of people and events that are mentioned in the main text. A useful introduction to the subject for students and interested readers alike, [and] a fine addition to both public and academic libraries."
---Library Journal

* Includes more than 150 photographs, maps, and specially commissioned artworks, all in full color

* With special features on a variety of key topics, from Jerusalem: City of Holy Places to the Glories of the Ottoman Empire
