So the Islamists intimidated Yale University Press into putting out a book called "The Cartoons that Shook the World" but removing every single illustration? Even the laudatory ones from the Mughal era?
Ah, but that was before the Salafists and the Muslim Brotherhood started calling the shots.
Even Amazon played games with this, by delaying the mailing of Dr. Hull's book. They claimed a waiting time but I spoke to Dr. Hull myself-- he had thousands of the darn things waiting to go out. Still, when I ordered it, Amazon took at least two weeks to send it to me. Being an Amazon book seller, I know that's against the rules for the rest of us.
Be sure to read Dr. Hull's excellent introduction in this book. He uses the example of Yale graduate Nathan Hale, who was hung by the British for his speech.
And some of the illustrations are magnificent. Such a shame that the "extremists" who shut Yale Press up are haters of beauty. There are many lovely illustrations here and we owe a debt to Dr. Hull for being willing to put this book out there.
Get the book. Put the anti-free speech folks in their place.
By reviewing the historical treatment of Muhammad in Western literature, this book shows that there is nothing new about the attempt to do so in the Danish cartoons, and that some Western publishers (especially Yale University Press) are wrong to have abandoned free speech in order to appease Muslim extremists.

Great book. This book is a brave task to present what most Muslims considered as prohibited and taboo, but unfortunately has a great political consequence. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Sunarwoto
