Crusade

The Struggle For The Holy Shrines is in the news again. That means, so are its apologists. Rodney Stark may be seeing his sales spike. I know the ISI has seen its hits spike.

Assuming we've all outgrown the bigot Gibbon and the fatuous Runciman - here are more recent books: Cobb, Race for Paradise and Catlos, Infidel Kings and Unholy Warriors. I've read the first part of Cobb; haven't read Catlos. Cobb does put it all in the context of the Mediterranean, as does the ISI.
