"The Routledge Companion to the Crusades" is not just a history of the crusades, but an overview of the logistical, economic, social and biographical aspects all brought together in one resource for the very first time. A compilation of facts, figures, maps, family trees, summaries of the major crusades and their historiography, the "Companion" spans a broad chronological range from the eleventh to the eighteenth century and gives a chronological framework and context for modern research on the crusading movement. For anyone investigating this fascinating period of time this will be an invaluable text for rapid, reliable consultation.
