Présentation de l'éditeur
Muslims and Crusaders supplements and counterbalances the numerous books that tell the story of the crusading period from the European point of view, enabling readers to achieve a broader and more complete perspective on the period. It presents the Crusades from the perspective 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 their 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.
This book combines chronological narrative, discussion of important areas of scholarly enquiry and evidence from primary sources to give a well-rounded survey of the period. It considers not only the military meetings between Muslims and the Crusaders, but also the personal, political, diplomatic and trade interactions that took place between Muslims and Franks away from the battlefield. Through the use of a wide range of translated primary source documents, including chronicles, dynastic histories, religious and legal texts and poetry, the people of the time are able to speak to us in their own voices.

'Dr. Christie (Langara College) gives us a source book on the Crusades in the Levant as seen by Islamic scholars and historians. The selections begin with Muslim views of Western Christendom on the eve of the Crusades, and vary in nature. Some give the reader insights into the contemporary political and military events as seen from the Muslim side, others address local perspectives on trade, personalities, dynastic squabbling, and cultural differences. The volume concludes with some selections on the influence of the Crusades down to the present, with a reading from Osama bin-Laden. Christie commendably includes a great deal of supporting material, to help the reader identify people, define ideas, and so forth. The book’s chief limitation is its omission of the long struggle between Eastern Christendom, primarily the Byzantines, with Islam in Middle East. This limitation aside, the book is useful for anyone interested in the subject seeking to learn more about the other side of the hill.'
