“this book is amazing. it's short but thorough, using the latest scholarship but easy to read. it's the best place to start for a general survey of the crusades that covers everything from start to finish and does so by reflecting not just what the crusades "were" but how they've been studied, from narrow views that limit "crusading" to jerusalem to those who also think about the baltic, spain, and even crusades launched internal to europe.”
