Reviews

'This is a tour de force of historical analysis...The data is meticulously analyzed and the conclusions drawn from it impressively documented. It is a rich and layered work that challenges some widespread and long-held views on the relationship between Christian and Muslim identity and community in Egypt.' Jamal J. Elias, Walter H. Annenberg Professor in the Humanities, University of Pennyslvania
