- The publication of the present anthology of primary
sources and secondary studies on the theme of Muslim antisemitism is
a ground breaking event of major scholarly, cultural, and political
significance. Editor Andrew Bostom has mined the relevant
literature to produce the fullest record on this subject in
existence. After the publication of his, work all the
oft-repeated, but erroneous misunderstandings of a tolerant Islam,
and of a medieval Jewish-Muslim "golden age" will need to be
permanently retired. Everyone interested in Jewish and Islamic
history, as well as current events in the Middle East should read
this book — and soon.
