The Crusades and the Expansion of Catholic Christendom, 1000-1714 is a fascinating and accessible survey that places the medieval Crusades in their European context, and examines, for the first time, their impact on European expansion. Taking a unique approach that focuses on the motivation behind the Crusades, John France chronologically examines the whole crusading movement, from the development of a a€˜crusading impulsea€™ in the eleventh century through to an examination of the relationship between the Crusades and the imperialist imperatives of the early modern period.
