Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This volume covers much ground: Western (mis)understandings of Islam, efforts to refute Islam, and latterly, to study it more objectively. Lucid and subtle ... recommended for undergraduates and above." Choice

"Europe and Islam is one of the titles in Blackwell's fine series the Making of Europe ... this is one of the rare treatments covering the expanse of 1,400 years of Islamic history in a single volume ... a worthy introduction to the topic of contacts between the Western world and Muslims." History: Reviews of New Books

"Europe and Islam is an interesting, readable text. It is perfect for university seminars in that it provides an overview of the history of the Christian-Muslim encounters and is sure to generate discussion and debate. And specialists will want to have a copy on their bookshelves as a reference..." Islam and Christian-Muslim relations
