Product description


Raymond Ibrahim has the humility to take seriously the voices and opinions of history's Christians and Muslims; the result is a refreshingly honest account of Islamic expansion and Christian reaction.

-- "Paul F. Crawford, Crusades historian, California University of Pennsylvania"

Enlightening for readers unfamiliar with the long history of war between these two faiths.

-- "New York Journal of Books"

Impressively informative, Sword and Scimitar is an exceptional work of outstanding scholarship that is so well written, it reads more like a deftly crafted novel than a non-fiction history.

-- "Midwest Book Review"

With passion, Raymond Ibrahim offers an edgy and eye-opening introduction to a millennium of warfare between the Muslim and Christian worlds before the modern age.

-- "Thomas Madden, author of Concise History of the Crusades"

An accessible and well-researched examination of extremely important but often neglected cultural phenomena and historical events that have impacted several civilizations up to the present day.

-- "Dario Fernandez-Morera, author of The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise"

Book Description

A sweeping history of the often-violent conflict between Islam and the West, shedding a revealing light on current hostilities
