Mayer, Hans Eberhard : Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel
Gillingham, John (Translator) : London School of Economics and Political Science
"The Crusades first appeared in English translation in 1972 and was widely acclaimed both as a work of scholarship and as a teaching instrument that brilliantly encompassed within a single comprehensive volume the history of the crusades....[The new edition] will continue to provide the basic foundation for beginners and advanced students alike of the subject in an authoritative, orderly, and judicious manner."
--History: Reviews of New Books
"Many have considered Mayer's work to be the best short introduction to the crusades. They will certainly applaud this updated edition."
"[Mayer] is the leading historian of the Crusades writing in German today."
