This book traces the long history of the troubled relationship of the Christian and Muslim worlds. it suggests that hatred is not an instinct but an attitude deliberatedly fostered and learned over many centuries. This compelling book traces how this has happened from those first days to the present. It is a history that for the first time focuses in detail upon all three areas where Muslims, Christians and Jews have lived together: Spain, the levant and the Balkans.The author makes no easy analogies between that past and our present but readers will make these connections for themselves. This is an important book because we live in deadly times, in part as a result of these false and 'recovered' memories of a long dead past.
-Publisher

How did we learn to hate or despise? Simply, because we were taught to.
In 638 the Christian Patriarch of the Holy city of Jerusalem called the Muslim Caliph's presence an abomination in the sight of God. Christians and Muslims have since regarded each other warily and have silently thought of each other as 'infidels.'
This book traces the long history of this troubled relationship. It was a campaign without end, waged with the pen, through the printing press, by the power of the human voice and on subtle and insidious suggestions in paintings, drawings and engravings. In this brilliant book we see how and why the battle is still being waged today, through the press, books, television, radio and the internet.
