Reviews

"The importance of the late Norman Daniel’s updated study… is as great now as it was when the first edition was published."
The Times Literary Supplement
"Carefully researched. An important addition to public and academic libraries."
Library Journal
"Painstakingly thorough. Twenty Years after its first publication, Islam and the West remains the standard work on views of Christian polemicists towards Islam."
Religious Studies Review
"A justly celebrated account of the reaction to the Christian world to the phenomenon of Islam."
Expository Times
"A monumental work of painstaking scholarship."
