These volumes survey the three religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and their relationship with each other, in concord and conflict during the last hundred years. Since Islam is the dominant faith, the term ‘Middle East’ denotes the social and cultural area in which Islam meets the other faiths, as well as Western civilisation and communism, rather than a precise geographical area. Thus, Central Asia, India, Pakistan and parts of Africa are included.
