Praise

Praise for Infidels

“Islam is a power that rose, fell, and rose again. All who wish to know the story will need to read Andrew Wheatcroft’s compelling work.”
—JOHN KEEGAN

“Wheatcroft has written an excellent and truly remarkable book. He reminds us of something vital, and too often forgotten: Most of those who were 100 percent sure that the infidels—call them Saracens, Agarenes, Ishmaelites, or Turks—were completely savage and barbarous had never met or seen a Saracen or a Turk in their lives. Somehow they just knew that these aliens should be hated and feared. As a promoter of dialogue between East and West, I agree with Wheatcroft—that unfortunately, now just as much as in the past, it is media outlets and the spreading of false knowledge that promote hostility.”
—HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS PRINCE EL HASSAN BIN TALAL OF JORDAN

“Rattling good reading . . . [Wheatcroft’s] humane conclusion is admirable.”
—FELIPE FERNÁNDEZ-ARMESTO, The Sunday Times (London)

“Gripping, often blood-curdling, history. . . recounted with tremendous literary flair.”
—JOHN ADAMSON, The Sunday Telegraph (London)
