In today's age of conflict in the Middle East, a look back at the Crusades of the Middle Ages provides a wealth of background information. This Modern Scholar selection provides 14 lectures covering the 400 years of Holy War between European Christians and Arab Muslims. Professor Thomas F. Madden employs a conversational lecture style that educates without condescension. Treating both sides of the conflict with respect, he invites listeners to come to an understanding of the sweeping sociological trends of the period and the motivations behind the individuals who contributed to them. Madden's clear Midwestern voice gives the course a straightforward quality, as does his restraint from academic jargon. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
