With authority, sympathy and wit, Bernard Lewis demolishes two competing stereotypes: the Islamophobic picture of the fanatical Muslim warrior, sword in one hand and Qur'an in the other, and the overly romanticized depiction of Muslim societies as interfaith utopias.

For those wishing a concise overview of the long period of Jewish-Muslim relations, The Jews of Islam remains an essential starting point."@en ;
