The relationship between Jews and Muslims has been a flashpoint that affects stability in the Middle East and has consequences around the globe. In this absorbing and eloquent book Martin Gilbert challenges the standard media portrayal and presents a fascinating account of hope, opportunity, fear, and terror that have characterized these two peoples through the 1,400 years of their intertwined history. In Ishmael's House draws upon Jewish, Christian, and Muslim sources, to uncover the human voice of this centuries-old conflict. Gilbert's moving account of mutual tolerance between Muslims and Jews offers an informed perspective for today's current events and provides a template for the future.
