With a focus on the Crusades, this volume contains 12 essays, most of which were first presented at the 33rd Medieval Workshop at the U. of British Columbia in 2003. While some of the papers describe specific issues--piracy in England's Cinque ports, and the Red Sea expedition of Reynald of Châtillon--most grapple with larger themes. These include Muslim views of the motives of the First Crusade, by Christie (religious studies, U. of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada); crusader strategy, by John France (medieval history, U. of Swansea, South Wales); and the still-pertinent topic of torture, by Piers D. Mitchell (Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine, U. of London, UK). Warren Treadgold (Byzantine studies, St. Louis U.) provides an essay on the Byzantine's attitudes towards warfare.
