With flair and originality, Christopher Tyerman presents a clear and lively discussion of the Crusades, bringing together issues of colonialism, cultural exchange, economic exploitation, and the relationship between past and present. He considers the effects of the Crusades on ordinary life in Western Europe, and the parts played by ordinary men and women in the conflict, and explores the term "Crusade" for contemporary political ends.

The book gives a fascinating overview of the many different activities and contexts of the crusades. Sadly, the audio book version suffers from a speaker whose pronunciation of French, German, and Latin phrases and names, of which there are plenty in the text, often leaves the listener clueless as to what is being referred to, making it difficult to follow the content. This is a shame, since his narration is otherwise very engaging.
