Author: Bernard Lewis
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Pages: 0 Binding: Paperback

Description from the publisher:

In this enlightening and distinguished collection of essays, many of them previously unpublished in English, Bernard Lewis explores the vast common heritage shared by Islam and the West and investigates each sides perception of each other. In these pieces, Lewis examines the troubled relations between the two regions since the Middle Ages. He focuses on the impact of the West on the Middle East in modern times, and the Islamic responses to Western dominance. He examines the resurgence of Islam and anti-Western sentiment in recent years and the vicissitudes of democratic institutions to take hold in the region, and, in addition, offers a devastating critique of Edward Said's controversial book Orientalism.
