In that time, interest in the crusades has increased, fuelled in part by the global interactions of the Muslim world and Western nations. It could be argued that the crusades, more than any other medieval event, have become inextricably linked to present-day political and religious debates. This long-anticipated new edition of The Crusades: A Reader features a chapter that addresses the history of perceptions of the crusades in the modern period, from David Hume and William Wordsworth to World War I political cartoons and crusading rhetoric circulating after 9/11.

New Islamic material includes Al-Sulamis The Book of Jihad, a record of Frederick IIs visit to Jerusalem in 1229, and a selection of sources detailing the homecoming of those who had ventured to the Holy Land.
