    "Readers of this book who thought they knew a lot about the U.S. Civil War will discover that much of that they 'knew' is wrong. For readers whose previous knowledge was sketchy but the desire to learn is strong, the separation of myth from reality is an important step toward mastering the subject. The essays will generate lively discovery and new insights." —James M. McPherson, Emeritus, Princeton University
  3. Seven Myths of the Crusades

    Edited, with an Introduction and Epilogue, by Alfred J. Andrea and Andrew Holt

    Seven Myths of the Crusades

    Series: Myths of History

    "Crusade historians frequently lament the wide gulf that separates modern scholarship from popular beliefs regarding the holy wars of the Middle Ages. In this lively book a group of those scholars tackle seven of the most intractable myths that obscure our view of the crusades. With erudition, energy, and a dose of humility this book makes the case that solid historical research brings us ever closer to historical accuracy—and that matters. The myths of the crusades may be legion, but breaking down seven of them is an excellent place to start."
          —Thomas F. Madden, St. Louis University
