Summary
In this panoramic history of Islamic culture in early Europe, a Pulitzer Prizewinning historian re-examines what we thought we knew. Lewis reveals how cosmopolitan, Muslim al-Andalus flourished--a beacon of cooperation and tolerance between Islam, Judaism, and Christianity--while proto-Europe made virtues out of hereditary aristocracy, religious intolerance, perpetual war, and slavery.--From publisher description
Summary
A panoramic history of Islamic culture in early Europe traces five centuries of engagement between the Muslim imperium and an emerging Europe to describe key Islamic cultural contributions and the interplay of cooperation between disparate religions
