Editorial Reviews


'A captivating profile of the religious diversity in the Middle East that has been driven to the brink of extinction in the century since the fall of the Ottoman Empire. A brilliant and essential history for understanding the tragedy of intolerance in the Arab world today.' Eugene Rogan, University of Oxford

'In this book, Heather J. Sharkey is not afraid to tackle major historical questions that are still relevant today: religion as an explanatory factor in history, the question of violence and religious liberty in Islam, the possibility of shared public spaces and secular culture. The originality of her work comes from her attention to the sensory experiences of historical actors and of the reader, in using images, clothes, foods and sounds as historical sources. Thus she invites us to reconsider the relationship between Muslims, Jews and Christians, on the basis of their everyday life.' Bernard Heyberger, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris

'Heather J. Sharkey provides a remarkable study of Muslim-Christian-Jewish relations in history that does not ignore the conflicts but also presents in-depth insights into day-to-day intercommunal relations. Her discussion of interreligious relations at the level of ordinary 'mundane' life adds a vital dimension to our understanding this subject. Sharkey's study makes a significant contribution generally to scholarship on pluralism and diversity in world history as well as specifically contributing to the understanding of cultural-religious-political history of the Middle East.' John Voll, Georgetown University, Washington, DC

This book examines relations between Muslims, Christians and Jews in the Ottoman Middle East before World War I.
