The studies in this volume originated in a symposium held at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, DC in May 1997. The 15 papers include studies on the idea of the Jihad before the Crusades, the notion of holy war in Byzantium, the representation of Europe in Arab hero cycles, Islamic views of Byzantium, the Crusades through Armenian eyes, Byzantium views of Latin Christianity, changing patterns of eastern Mediterranean trade and economy caused by the Crusades, and the impact of western art and architecture on the forms of Islam and Byzantium. The contributors are drawn from an international group of senior scholars in their fields; the editors both teach history at Harvard. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Angeliki E. Laiou is Dumbarton Oaks Professor of Byzantine History at Harvard University and a former Director of Dumbarton Oaks.Review:
The Crusades from the Perspective of Byzantium and the Muslim World is the result of scholarly reassessments of the Crusades. The views expressed here complement the other examinations that focused on the internal and Western aspects of the movement on the nine-hundredth anniversary of the Council of Clermont. The volume opens with an introduction to the historiography of the Crusades, followed by wide-ranging discussions covering four topics: holy war in Byzantium and Islam; the approaches and attitudes of the various peoples affected by and involved in the Crusades; the movement's effect on the economies of the eastern Mediterranean; and the influence of the Crusades on the art and architecture of the East.
