This fascinating history by an eminent scholar explores 3,000 years of relations between Jews and Arabs. Although written in 1954, it remains relevant because of its focus on cultural influences rather than political and military issues. Topics include Jewish traditions in islam, islamic influence on Jewish philosophy, and Jewish and islamic mysticism and poetry.
