DescriptionJoin us for an evening with Dan Jones, The Sunday Times best-selling author of The Templars, as hetalks about his new book Crusaders: An Epic History of the Wars for the Holy Lands.Dan Jones, best-selling chronicler of the Middle Ages, turns his attention to the history of the Crusades the sequence of religious wars fought between the late eleventh and late medieval periods, in which armies from European Christian states attempted to wrest the Holy Land from Islamic rule, and which have left an enduring imprint on relations between the Muslim world and the West.Crusaders presents a distinctive perspective on a medieval conflict between Christianity and Islam whose echoes still resonate today. Rather than simply charting the events of the Crusades, Jones offers a tableau history based on a chronological sequence of episodes featuring people who were involved in them. The crusaders of the books title include women and men, Christians of the eastern and western churches, Sunni and Shia Muslims, Arabs, Jews, Turks, Egyptians, Berbers and Mongols and even a band of Vikings.With an epilogue charting how this thousand-year-old conflict has shaped the modern world right up to 2019, Dan Jones brings his masterful storytelling and a new perspective to this bloody period in the worlds history.Dan Jones is the author of The Plantagenets, The Hollow Crown, Magna Carta and The Templars. The Plantagenets was adapted into a four-part Channel 5 television series and The Templars has sold more than 150,000 copies in Head of Zeus English language editions, and rights in twelve languages.
