A Concise History of the Crusades, Hardback Book

A Concise History of the Crusades Hardback

Part of the Critical Issues in History series


The crusades were a quintessentially medieval phenomenon, which both defined and reflected the unique social forces that characterized Europe in the Middle Ages.

In this fascinating book, Thomas F. Madden places the crusades within the medieval social, economic, religious, and intellectual environments that gave birth to the movement and nurtured it for centuries.

He also examines the impact of the Crusades on the Islamic societies which were their primary target, as well as discussing their implications for the Christian Byzantine East.

This book will provide students with an up-to-date and accessible introduction to both the Crusades and medieval history.
