From the 12th century, merchants from north Italian and southern French towns were able to take advantage of Christian conquests in Italy, Sicily and the Levant to dominate the markets of those regions and of North Africa. This book examines the impact of this combination of conquest and trade.

Le recueil comprend des etudes sur la survie des Juifs et des Musulmans en Sicile, sur le debat a propos du 'sous-developpement' de l'Italie meridionale, de la Sicile et de la Sardaigne au Moyen Age, sur les rapports entre les dirigeants de ces regions et les marchands, ainsi que sur la penetration mercantile du royaume de Jerusalem, de Chypre et de Tunis, dans le sillon des Croises et des rois de Sicile.
