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. Visit our website for sample chapters!

This book reviews all of the Crusades from the first Crusade starting in 1095 A.D. to the last one ending around 1250 A.D. It goes into enough detail for the general reader. It also offers a select bibliography for those readers who wish to read in more detail about any particular crusade. I would think it would satisfy the interest level of 80% of readers. One thing that surprised me was the amount of inter-Christian rivalry and even armed conflict among the Crusaders - absent that, I think they would've been far more successful in their mission of retaking the Holy Land for Christianity. What a pity!
