Palgrave Advances in the Crusades by H. Nicholson

The Crusades were a startling and spectacular phenomenon that exerted a powerful influence on European development over a period of many centuries. Much recent writing has been devoted to explaining how the crusades began and what they achieved. This volume is intended as an introductory guide and analysis of how different aspects of crusading studies have developed. Rather than giving an account of events, each chapter offers an interpretative and historiographical study. It is aimed both at postgraduates and at professional academics.


'An original and thought-provoking series of essays by top-flight scholars. The collection sets out many essential themes of crusading history in a refreshing and accessible fashion'. - Jonathan P. Phillips, Royal Holloway, University of London'
