Summary: The recapture of Jerusalem, the siege of Acre, the fall of Tripoli, the effect in Baghdad of the struggles in Syria - these and other dramatic events were faithfully recorded by Arab historians during the two centuries of the Crusades. For the first time, contemporary accounts of the fighting between Muslims and Christians have been translated into English, and the Western reader can learn something of the other side of the Holy War.

Seventeen authors are ...show morerepresented here by extracts from their works, which have been drawn from various types of historical writing. These selections are taken firstly from the general histories of the Muslim world; then from the chronicles of cities, regions, and dynasties; and finally from biographies or records of the deeds of key individuals. The Arab histories of the Crusades compare favorably with their Christian counterparts in their scope, their rich accumulation of material, and their merits is their faithful characterizations, many of which give brief but illuminating sketches of enemy leaders: Baldwin ll's shrewdness, Richard Coeur de Lion's prow3ess in war, Conrad of Montferrart's indomitable energy. Fredrick ll's diplomacy. Not surprisingly, the chronicles are generous in their praise of the great champions of the Muslim resistance - especially of Saladin, who towers above all other leaders in heroic stature.

Altogether. Arab Historians of the Crusades offers a sweeping and stimulating view of the conflict, as seen through Arab eyes. ...show less
