On Order



The expulsion of the Christians from the Holy Land in 1291 was far from being the end of the crusading movement. Norman Housley's comprehensive survey is the first to focus in depth on the later crusades. This is a wide-ranging and lucidly written study, which will be invaluable to studentsof the crusades. It is supplemented by fourteen maps and a guide to further reading.
