Promotional Information

This book is a major contribution to the history of the Crusades in the Levant and the only scholarly study of medieval Cyprus.


'... undoubtedly the most important contribution in English to the history of the Cypriot kingdom since [Sir George] Hill's work [of 1948] ... Edbury's book on the Kingdom of Cyprus and the crusades is certainly both a stimulating piece of research and an important synthesis of early and recent scholarly achievements in this field. The author does not take any authority for granted, going back to the original sources, examining them in the most critical and balanced manner, and drawing from them original and sometimes illuminating conclusions.' Mediterranean Historical Review 'There is no doubting the value of this book, which is well written and well produced ... We are provided with a compact, sustained and valuable narrative of events, and an assured guide to the intricacies of a political scene.' Simon Lloyd, History 'This book is based on an exceptional command of the sources and secondary literature, and its author argues his position with authority and prudence ... This fine work of scholarship confirms its author's status as the doyen of historians of medieval Cyprus in the English-speaking world.' Norman Housley, Journal of Ecclesiastical History
