Format: Paperback
Any serious student of the subject should read this work. Scholarship is not meant to be light reading (with nod to the prior viewer), but accurate in the information it conveys. Professor Goiten achieves this and deserves the many accolades he has received from his peers and inheritors in the study of the religious, social, and cultural interactions between Jews and Arabs.

Format: Paperback
This is a book for those who are interested in the cultural interactions of Jews and Arabs. While it isn't great literature it is well written, and let's face it, if you're interested enough in history and bring enough prior knowledge to the book, it will be worth reading because this is the kind of book you are looking for, truthful without dumbing down the subject or pushing a point of view.

While the Jewish experience in various Islamic countries and during different time periods varied, there was cross-cultural influence going both ways. Jews were persecuted at certain times in certain places, while during other periods some were able to amass wealth and power. It is important to remember that interaction, some of it violent, between Jews and Arabs goes back to pre-biblical times. We pay more attention to the Islamic period though for obvious reasons.

The only quarrel I have with this book is Goiten's early insistence that Islam was not spread by violence but talking later about Islam's wars of conquest.
