The study of the relationship between Jews and Muslims has its roots in German nineteenth century oriental scholarships. Some of the chief contributors to the discourse were Jews who wished to highlight the tolerance of the Muslim states towards Jews as a way of reproaching conte...mporary German society for inequalities which Jews suffered. With the growth of Zionism and an associated historiography Zionist historians tended to accentuate the sufferings of Jews in Islamic countries. In recent times the focus of scholarship has been on shared features rather than on denunciation and this volume written by leading scholars from the Arab world, Israel and Europe and the United States follows in this tradition. Whereas historical literacy links via the work of the great mediaeval Jewish thinker Saadia Gao or the literary work of the so-called Golden Age in Spain are not ignored, the main focus of this work is the modern period. The situation of the Jews and their relationship with their Arab neighbours in Lebanon, the Yemen, Tunisia, Morocco and Israel/Palestine are covered in this volume.
