As Wikipedia says, 'His three-volume history has had a profound impact on common conceptions of the Crusades, primarily portraying the Crusaders negatively and the Muslims favourably. Runciman was a strong admirer of the Byzantine Empire, and consequently held a bias against the Crusaders for the Fourth Crusade evident in his work'.
If I knew this before, I would still have some bucks with me.
Unfortunately I bought his trilogy thinking it was a good and unbiased material... thank God I forgot this thing for years, and now, after founding it, read your comment before opening it.
