Product description

Please note: The text of this book is in German.

Subtitled: Die Kreuzzüge aus der Sicht der Araber (The Crusades from the perspective of the Arabs)

Die Erklärung des amerikanischen Präsidenten George W. Bush nach dem 11. September 2001, die USA müssten zusammen mit ihren Verbündeten einen "Kreuzzug" gegen den Terrorismus führen, löste, insbesondere in der arabischen Welt, Irritationen aus. Dies lässt offenbar werden, welch nachhaltiges Trauma die Kreuzzüge im kollektiven Gedächtnis der muslimischen Welt hinterlassen haben. Die Fassungslosigkeit und das Entsetzen der hochzivilisierten arabischen Welt angesichts der "barbarischen Invasoren" aus dem Abendland spiegelt sich in nahezu allen arabischen Chroniken und Berichten aus der Zeit zwischen 1096 und 1291 wider.Sehr anschaulich, ausgewogen und kritisch schildert Amin Maalouf auf der Grundlage dieser Quellen die Geschichte der Kreuzzüge aus der Perspektive der "anderen Seite" und ermöglicht so einen neuen Blick auf den ersten entscheidenden Bruch in den Beziehungen zwischen der westlichen Welt und dem Orient, dessen Auswirkungen am 11. September 2001 so erschreckend deutlich wurden.

The declaration by American President George W. Bush after September 11, 2001 that the United States and its allies would have to wage a "crusade" against terrorism aroused irritation, especially in the Arab world. This reveals the lasting trauma the Crusades left in the collective memory of the Muslim world. The bewilderment and horror of the highly civilised Arab world in the face of the "barbaric invaders" from the West is reflected in almost all Arab chronicles and reports from the period between 1096 and 1291.On the basis of these sources, Amin Maalouf describes the history of the Crusades from the perspective of the "other side" very vividly, balanced and critically, thus enabling a new look at the first decisive break in the relationship between the Western world and the Orient and its effects became so frighteningly clear on September 11, 2001.

The book has its dust jacket which is intact.  The book is in excellent condition throughout.
