Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"a well-balanced account of the many contribut8ions that voices from the West and the Islamic worlds have made to the development of concepts of tolerance and inclusion . . .a wide range of audiences will be interested in this book, which represents a significant contribution to the current debate on the relationship between Islam and the West." - Global Change, Peace & Security

"Aaron Tyler has produced a major contribution to the emerging literature in both comparative political thought and the foundations of religious and cultural toleration. His book successfully brings to light the respective intellectual strengths and weaknesses of the Western and Islamic source materials for toleration, without seeking to promote one position to the exclusion of the other. This work will surely be cited and debated by scholars for a long time to come." - Cary J. Nederman, Professor ofPolitical Science, Texas A & M University
