Norman Daniel's Islam And The West is a classic study of the formation and development of Western attitudes about Islam from medieval times to the present. Born of medieval conflict, to this day the relationship between Islam And The West remains one of confrontation and misunderstanding. Drawing upon a lifelong study of the subject, and thoroughly revised and updated before his death in 1992, Dr. Norman Daniel examines the religious and political considerations behind Western views of Islam, exploring such issues as attitudes towards violence and morality in Islam, the life of Muhammad, and the authenticity of the Qur'an. Islam And The West is an essential, core book for any personal, academic, or community library. -- Midwest Book Review
