The studies in this volume originated in a symposium held at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, DC in May 1997. The 15 papers include studies on the idea of the Jihad before the Crusades, the notion of holy war in Byzantium, the representation of Europe in Arab hero cycles, Islamic views of Byzantium, the Crusades through Armenian eyes, Byzantium views of Latin Christianity, changing patterns of eastern Mediterranean trade and economy caused by the Crusades, and the impact of western art and architecture on the forms of Islam and Byzantium. The contributors are drawn from an international group of senior scholars in their fields; the editors both teach history at Harvard. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
