Editorial Reviews

"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
