Subjects Description Discussion of medieval European expansion tends to focus on expansion eastward and the crusades. No one can say how, when, where or why, without provoking dissent. The articles collected in this volume explore the causes and the nature of this expansion, from a variety of historical traditions. Everyone agrees it happened.
