Queller, Donald E. and Thomas F. Madden.

Univ. of Pennsylvania:1997. 1st printing of this edition. Very good in fine dust jacket. Some scuffing to page edges. 357 p. w/ map, index, and extensive notes and bibliography. Slight smoky smell to book. A well researched & updated history of the misguided and brutal 4th crusade that sacked Constantinople (now Istanbul) and installed a Latin Emperor on the throne of the Greek Orthodox Byzantine Empire.
