A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance

A remarkable history of the infamous Crusades that seeks to right some the too often misunderstood record. What were the crusades in their original intent? What was the original cause? Was it a war of aggression? Was it a justifiable cause? And just what happened in carrying out that cause? What were the injustices? What is the legacy of the crusades … for Muslims and for others? A very well-informed book, Madden tells “the story of the crusades in a concise, understandable, and engaging manner based on the extraordinary fruits of more than half a century of modern scholarship.” Full of interest, especially given the renewed references to the crusades in comparison to current events.
