The New Crusades: How U.S. Foreign Policy Got Stuck in the (Mythical) Middle Ages

Written by Alec Fisken
Category: · History

The New Crusades describes the related meanings of the terms West, Western Civilization, and the Clash of Civilizations as they are used in contemporary journalism and politics. It describes how those terms developed historically, and how they came to infect U.S. foreign policy. In tracing the historical roots of those terms, the book examines the narrative of medieval European history that they imply and finds it to be largely false.
