    DescriptionWith breathtaking command of medieval Muslim sources as well as the vast literature on medieval European and Muslim culture, Carole Hillenbrand has produced a book that shows not only how the Crusades were perceived by the Muslims, but how the Crusades affected the Muslim world - militarily, culturally, and psychologically.

    Review quote
    "a valuable work of serious scholarly synthesis... Heavily annotated and lavishly illustrated, "The Crusades is a most welcome book... "The Crusades is a major contributor to the goal of a more "holistic" overview of the crusades. More than a textbook, it certainly can be used as one. Historians and teachers of the medieval eastern Mediterranean now have an extremely useful resource at their fingertips; it unfolds the complexity of the Muslim opposition to the Crusades, and presents a careful introduction to many aspects of Muslim history... Hillenbrand's book takes major strides toward unpacking and revealing what contemporary eyes may have seen."-"MESA Bulletin "[T]he author aims at providing an 'outline for future research' as well as engaging students and the general public Themes covered extend beyond mere chronology to topics in theology, warfare, art and literature, popular and material culture."-"Middle East Journal "A remarkable contribution to the history of relations between east and west."-Anne-Marie Edde "Ground-breaking work."-Jonathan Riley-Smith "A landmark."-"London Review of Books
