At the end of the nineteenth century, a small group of American students launched a student mission movement that eventually recruited and helped to deploy more than twenty thousand missionaries over a period of about half a century. The End of a Crusade looks at the development and eventual decline of the Student Volunteer Movement (SVM), chronicling the dissillusionment felt by student volunteers as they were compelled to leave the SVM and enlist in a different crusade. With 11 black and white illustrations.
