Robert Payne's highly praised histories and biographies include The Rise and Fall of Stalin, the Life and Death of Lenin and Ivan the Terrible.

Review:

No man alive can write more beautiful prose than Robert Payne. (The New York Times)

Magnificent. Recreates 200 years of Crusader history with a blazing intensity that exhibits to the full Payne's powers as both scholar and storyteller. A major contribution to our understanding of the Middle Ages. Marvelous reading. (Publishers Weekly)

The Dream and the Tomb examines the eight holy wars that took place between 1095 and 1270, exploring both the political desires of the princes and the suffering of the ordinary people. With the understanding and depth of the author, Robert Payne, these rich and memorable details bring the past to life. (History Magazine)

Excellent. Payne is at the height of his powers. Reading this history of the distant past turns the present Middle East crisis suddenly transparent. (The Instrumentalist)
