Arab-Muslim Views of the West from the Ninth Century to the Twentieth: The Neglected Bridge Builders
This book introduces readers to many previously neglected Arab-Muslim thinkers who, over the past 1,000 years, have reflected on the relation between Islam and the West. Many of these thinkers have been overlooked by Western scholars because of their orientalist frame of mind, but they were important bridge builders.
