Few attempts had been made to define 'the crusade' before the first edition of this book was published in 1977. Since then a number of historians have built on Professor Riley-Smith's conclusions. Their research has been incorporated into this second edition, which remains a starting point for any study of the crusading movement. The book deals with the legitimising authority of the papacy, the nature of the crusade vow and of the privilege accorded to crusaders, the developments of the indulgence, and the role of Military Orders.

Review:

'An indispensable short introduction to a vast subject'
- Professor Thomas Madden, St Louis University, USA 'None of the growing number of rather good general books on the Crusades performs the same service in anything like the same measure as Riley-Smith's; no bibliography for an undergraduate course can afford to dispense with this book.' - Professor Peter Jackson, Keele University, UK
