* Timely history of the battle for the Mediterranean in the 15th and 16th centuries by the forces of Islam and Christendom, out now in paperback
Barnaby Rogerson is the author of the four much-admired editions of Cadogan's guidebook on Morocco, and with his wife Rose Baring the two on Tunisia. He runs Eland Press, which specializes in classic travel writing.
Praise for "The Last Crusaders" ?This thoroughly readable book provides a vibrant and well-organized account of this tumultuous, lesser-known period of history. Highly recommended for both students and general readers.? --"Library Journal" (Starred Review) ?Barnaby Rogerson paints a vivid canvas, sweeping in scope and full of memorable detail... The author is especially good at narrating in gripping, and often grisly, detail the great sieges and battles that punctuated this struggle. The book is furnished with excellent maps, a useful chronological chart, numerous illustrations, and a very full bibliography. The writing is engaging and vivid, never pedantic. Any history buff will find this book a pleasure.? --"ForeWord Review"
