Did Muslims and Jews in the Middle Ages cohabit in a peaceful interfaith utopia? Or were Jews under Muslim rule persecuted, much as they were in Christian lands? Rejecting both polemically charged myths, Mark Cohen offers a systematic comparison of Jewish life in medieval Islam and Christendom--the first in-depth explanation of why medieval Islamic-Jewish relations, though not utopic, were less confrontational and violent than those between Christians and Jews in the West.
