About the Author
Bat Yeor, born in Cairo, became a stateless refugee in 1957 and a British citizen in 1959. Her first book, The Jews of Egypt (French/1971; Hebrew 1974) was followed by Le Dhimmi (1980), widely acclaimed when the English edition appeared in 1985 (Hebrew/1986Z; Russian/1991). It remains an essential introduction to her second major work, The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam: From Jihad to Dhimmitude (1996; German/2002). The French edition (1991) established the authors reputation as an innovative thinker in a new field of research, which has now been greatly enhanced by her third study, Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilization Collide (2002). All of her books are regularly reprinted. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Pat provides an excellent view of the collision of the Arabic so called civilization with almost all other civilizations. The historical facts in the book are so well referenced.
Pat, I admire you for your excellent work. Keep it up.
Partly the problem rests on lack of sources and literature, this book begins to fill this essential gap.
A second way to analyze the question of which Jews were 'better off' is to see the end result. If Muslim lands were 'better' to the Jews then why did the Jews of Europe become free and wealthy? Why were there more Jews in Europe than muslim lands despite persecution, endless forced conversion and murder due to claims that Jews created the black death? Jews numbered 12 million in Christian lands while they numbered only a million in Muslim ones in 1930. By 1945 the numbers were 6 million and 1 million. By 1967 the numbers were 8 million and 50,000.

Bat Ye'or is a formidable historian, and her book describes in detail what is basically hell on earth---the painful consequences of letting Muslims subjugate one's culture by foolishly ignoring ALL manifestations of jihad, which include not only armed warfare, but also demographic warfare (Muslims multiplying faster than infidels) and Da'wa (deceiving and confusing infidels by claiming that Islam is a religion of peace, etc.).
Don't fall victim to Muslim Da'wa---be an informed infidel. Read this book, as well as
The Legacy of Jihad
The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam
Why I Am Not Muslim
The alternative to successfully resisting Islam is not pleasant (to put it mildly), as you will learn from reading this excellent book.
