   schema:reviewBody ""Religion has always been used to build political organizations - from the multi-ethnic empires of the Byzantines, Arabs, Ottomans, Austrians and Russians to the present-day nation states. This book explores the complex social and political relationship of the frontier between Christianity and Islam, arguing that it should be understood as a zone of contact rather than a distinct line of confrontation." "The Christian-Muslim Frontier describes the historical formation of this zone, and its contemporary dimensions: geopolitical, psychological, economic, and security. Special attentions is given to the concept of states frontiers, to the effects of the uneven development of nation states and the contemporary interspersing of communities, which creates new functional frontiers. Further, the frontier is described as a mental construction, imagined by people in their search for social order, and individual and collective security."--Jacket." ;
