`An indispensable short introduction to a vast subject.'---Thomas Madden. St. Louis UniversityFew attempts had been made to define'the crusade' before this book was first published in 1977. Since then, a number of historians have built on Jonathan Riley-Smith's original conclusion. Now in its fourth edition, this classic starting point for the study of the crusading movement has been updated to take into account the latest developments in the field.Original in its conception, this essential guide is a contribution of major importance to crusading scholarship. In its clear and concise treatment of the issues, it remains an unequalled introduction to the subject for students and general readers alike.show more
