A History of the Crusades by Steven Runciman, was originally published in three volumes during 1951-1954, and is considered an influential work in the historiography of the Crusades. The three-volume history has had a profound impact on common conceptions of the Crusades, primarily portraying the Crusaders negatively and the Muslims favourably. Its scope encompasses the ascendancy of Islam in the Levant during the early 7th century through the fall of Acre in 1291, with later chapters covering through 1464, the time of pope Pius II.
