Abstract
 
Description
The word assassin is now in common usage in the west but where did it originate? The Assassins were a secret Islamic sect that appeared at the time of the Crusades although their targets were more often Muslim leaders and the elite than crusading Christians. This history of the origins, doctrines, belligerent techniques and tactics of the Assassins, written by one of the most prolific and respected writers on the history of the Middle East, has now been re-issued with a new preface by the author. - from Amzon
