Britain and Islam: A History From 622 To the Present Day


-
Add to Calendar Europe/Paris Britain and Islam: A History From 622 To the Present Day

In this broad yet sympathetic survey – ranging from the Crusades to the modern day – Martin Pugh explores the social, political, and cultural encounters between Britain and Islam. He looks, for instance, at how reactions against the Crusades led to Anglo-Muslim collaboration under the Tudors, at how Britain posed as defender of Islam in the Victorian period, and at her role in rearranging the Muslim world after 1918. Pugh argues that, contrary to current assumptions, Islamic groups have often embraced Western ideas, including modernization and liberal democracy.
