About the Author

Caroline Smith works in the Department of History at Saint Louis University, USA.


'Caroline Smith is a careful and conscientious historian who handles her evidence well. Historians who have read Joinville's account of the Seventh Crusade innumerable times will find themselves approaching that narrative somewhat differently after reading Smith's Crusading in the Age of Joinville.' H-France Review '... this is an engaging study of a fascinating period which handles a variety of sources well.' Medium Aevum
