2000 Albert Hourani Book Award Honorable Mention

The Crusades: Islamic Perspectives, is a visually rich, marvelously well-integrated, and admirably multidisciplinary work. The book is accessible enough to be used as a textbook while incorporating telling primary research and revisionist arguments. The range of topics covered, from Muslim attitudes toward Franks to religious architecture to battlefield tactics and fortifications, is astonishing.
