Antisemitism and Islamophobia in Europe : a shared story?

edited by James Renton and Ben Gidley

This volume interrogates how the dynamic relationship between antisemitism and Islamophobia has evolved over time and space. The result is the uncovering of a previously unknown story in which European ideas about Jews and Muslims were indeed connected, but were also ripped apart. Religion, empire, nation-building, and war all played their part in the complex evolution of this relationship.
