Disregard right wing xenophobic reviews. This is solid history
Fine book with solid history.
Good, Unbiased Source of Information
It is evident that the people leaving reviews accusing the author of being biased against the Christians did not fully understand the text, as the author offers a fair amount of criticism against Muslims as well as Christians. The text in no way attempts to glorify one side or the other, and I found it to be relatively unbiased. I felt that the author actually made it a point to criticize and praise both sides equally in order to avoid people accusing him of bias, but clearly you can’t please everyone, especially if they were only looking for this book to confirm biases or suspicions they had beforehand.
I used this book as a source for a reasearch paper I did on the crusades, and it was really helpful!
Not as biased as you would think
The book is very good at not being biased. The history is correct and states the facts. I enjoy it and hope that the people writing the negitive reviews actually read the book.
To the leftist reviewer throwing out the racist card
Just had to mention this, regarding the reviewer accusing others of racism. Whoever calls those who have different opinions racist shows the depravity of their argument. Seems to be a common tactic of the left, if you can't win the argument with evidence and reason, then call them a racist and shout them down.
