"This compilation of articles provides an opportunity for students and scholars of the Middle East to understand the complicated patchwork of peoples living in the area that has been transformed into what we now call the ‘Middle East’."—Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations

"A very well-researched and timely volume engaging with the many political, social and religious contexts which confronted the various Jewish, Christian and Muslim minorities in the modern Arab world. ...This collection provides necessary background to understanding many of dilemmas which continue to trouble Arab society and culture today"—Anthony O’Mahony, Heythrop College, University of London

"Over the past century and a half, numerous Middle Eastern Muslim, Christian, and Jewish communities have experienced marginalization, violence, and ultimately displacement. These conflicts have led many to the mistaken conclusion that an endemic, immutable religious intolerance plagues the region. By contextualizing a selection of local experiences, the essays included in this book offer an important corrective."—Joshua Schreier, associate professor of history, Vassar College
