Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an important collection of studies that both scholars and students will wish to consult. Completed by two full and suitably affectionate introductory essays on Riley-Smith as scholar and teacher, the volumes provide a worthy celebration of perhaps the most distinguished and prominent of living historians of the crusades in the English-speaking world, and certainly one of the most generous, fertile, and prolific." The International History Review, Christopher Tyerman, Hertford College & New College, Oxford
