The Crusades looks at the first half (1095-1193) of the conflict (1095-1291). It begins with an outline of the present narrative of the subject (by Non-Muslim authors principally), and shows its deficiencies. It then explains the main reasons for the crusades. Following this, the book chronicles events on the ground. The work relies on both Muslim and Christian sources, old and new, primary and secondary. There are also maps and drawings by the 19th century French artist: Gustave Dore.
