Read the chapters about Islam for an Islamic Studies block. I was horrified to find such misleading and offensive language in a Waldorf book. I would never recommend this unless you're willing to teach your students how far Western writers have gone to malign the culture of the Middle East.
Whether you home school or not, Charles Kovacs has put together a wonderful historical resource for the Crusades to the Renaissance; a period in history when we were breaking away from "Kingly" authority and trying to find out who we were as a people and as individuals with our own rights and freedom.
Charles Kovacs writes history in an interesting way and understands not only physical history, but the developmental steps of a child and how to take a 12 or 13 year old on a journey through history that is relevant to their own development. Instead of accepting the teen rebellion as normal, Kovacs teaches teens to learn from this period in history and use this time in their life to discover, explore and build their own authority.
