Read: Maalouf: 59-231. Since this reading is not on the WEB, I include here the response FORM for Maalouf .- due Sunday April 3. Read also Menocal, pp. 130-157.
For comparison' sake, read: John France
, "The Roots of Victory," chpt. 1 of his Victory in the East: A
Military History of the First Crusade, Cambridge University Press,
1994, pp. 1-25. France presents a view of Western motive which is quite
different from that that Maalouf notes. This is on the WEB.
for Week Twelve.
