This book traces the condition of Jews living in the world of Islam, through good times and bad times, from the age of Muhammad to the present struggles between Arabs and Israelis. Muslims and Jews have lived together and reacted to each other for the past 1,400 years but few Jews today have much idea of how their brethren once fared under Islam. Muslims too know little of the history of what was to them an insignificant minority. Despite their subordinate status in Muslim society, Jews participated in the flowering of the brilliant international civilization made possible by the almost world-wide conquests of the Arabs and bound together by the Arabic language; and it was under Muslim rule that the early Judaism developed into the religion we know today. Later Jews enjoyed another golden age in the heyday of the Ottoman Empire. Sunlight and Shadow details this turbulent history.
