Zachary Karabell People of the Book from John Murray

“Christians and Jews, however the relationship between Islam and the West has never been simply one of animosity, but also one of cooperation. In an extraordinary narrative spanning fourteen centuries, Zachary Karabell reminds us that these three faiths have fought and taught each other. Retrieving this forgotten history is vital to a more stable, secure world.” — back cover
