Arab historians of the Crusades by Francesco Gabrieli( Book )

70 editions published between 1957 and 2010 in English and held by 1,839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The recapture of Jerusalem, the siege of the Acre, the fall of Tripoli, the effect in Baghdad of events in Syria; these and other happenings were faithfully recorded by Arab historians during the two centuries of the Crusades. For the first time contemporary accounts of the fighting between Muslim and Christian have been translated into English, and the Western reader can learn 'the other side' of the Holy War. Seventeen authors are represented in the extracts in this work, which have been drawn from various types of historical writings. The excerpts are taken firstly from the general histories of the Muslim world, then from chronicles of cities, regions and their dynasties, and finally from biographies or records of the deeds of certain persons. The Arab histories of the Crusades compare favorably with their Christian counterparts in their rich accumulation of material and chronological information. Another of their merits is their faithful characterization, which they practiced in the brief but illuminating sketches of enemy leaders: Baldwin II's shrewdness, Richard Coeur de Lion's prowess in war, the indomitable energy of Conrad of Motferrat, Frederick II's diplomacy. The chronicles are generous, naturally, with their praises of the great champions of the Muslim resistance, especially of Saladin, who towers above all the other leaders in heroic stature."

Storici Arabi delle Crociate by Francesco Gabrieli( Book )

33 editions published between 1957 and 2007 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Al tempo delle Crociate numerosi storici arabi, non diversamente dai cronachisti europei, narrarono i fatti e le gesta di quelle guerre e dei loro eroi. Il tradizionale campo del nemico, di Solimano, di Argante e dei <<cani saraceni>>, si trasforma nell'avamposto dei soldati di un'altra fede in lotta contro i <<porci cristiani>>. A Goffredo subentra il pio Saladino, al Santo Sepolcro la Santa Roccia su cui il profeta poggiò il piede nella sua miracolosa ascensione notturna. Gli antagonismi di allora ancora riecheggiano, eppure nelle pagine degli storici arabi incontriamo una chiarezza originararia che può illuminare tanti dei conflitti teologici e molti degli odi razziali
