Samenvatting

Muslims and Crusaders combines chronological narrative, discussion of important areas of scholarly enquiry and evidence from Islamic primary sources to give a well-rounded survey of Christianity's wars in the Middle East, 1095-1382. Revised, expanded and updated to take account of the most recent scholarship, this second edition enables readers to achieve a broader and more complete perspective on the crusading period by presenting the crusades from the viewpoints of those against whom they were waged, the Muslim peoples of the Levant. The book introduces the reader to the most significant issues that affected Muslim responses to the European crusaders and their descendants who would go on to live in the Latin Christian states that were created in the region. It considers not only the military encounters between Muslims and crusaders, but also the personal, political, diplomatic, and trade interactions that took place between the Muslims and Franks away from the battlefield. Engaging with a wide range of translated primary source documents, including chronicles, dynastic histories, religious and legal texts, and poetry, Muslims and Crusaders is ideal for students and historians of the crusades.

Recensie(s)

'The author superbly combines chronological narrative with thematic case studies and skilfully integrates the original Arab sources - an essential introduction to the history of the Crusades in the Middle East.' Dr Konrad Hirschler, SOAS, University of London, UK 'Christie's volume is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature on the Crusades, written specifically for classroom use. [He] also engages readers in lively discussions on certain points in the narrative that question the sources, serving as an example for studying why sources should not be taken for granted. Summing up: Highly Recommended.' T. M. May, University of North Georgia, U.S.A. in CHOICE Niall Christie has produced a substantial, user-friendly, counterbalancing presentation of the Crusades for use in university courses. Specialists, too, will value the book for its judicious emphasis on, and documentation of, the Muslim side of the story. Laurence W. Marvin, Berry College, U.S.A. in Michigan War Studies Review
