Madden, Thomas F. : Saint Louis University
Thomas F. Madden is Associate Professor of History and Chair at Saint Louis University. He has published numerous studies on the crusades including The Fourth Crusade: The Conquest of Constantinople (1997) and A Concise History of the Crusades (1999).
"Madden's new book seeks to bridge the gap between popular caricatures of the crusades and the more balanced picture of the movement that historians have been producing for more than a generation. The dozen specimens of lively recent scholarship on the crusades that Madden has assembled here are shrewdly calculated to provoke students into rethinking what they thought they knew about the crusading movement."
--James A. Brundage, University of Kansas
