Description


This volume investigates the context of Western views of Islam and offers an introduction to the historical roots and contemporary anxiety regarding Islam within the Western world.

Tracing the medieval legacy of religious polemics and violence, Green orients the reader to the complex history and issues in Western relations to Islam, from early and late modern colonial enterprises and theories of Orientalism, to the production of religious discourses of otherness and the clash of civilizations that proliferated in the era of 9/11 and the war on terror.
