Launch of Muslim-Jewish Relations Handbook

22 August 2016


The Routledge Handbook of Muslim-Jewish Relations has just been published. Edited by Professor Yousef Meri, a former Academic Director at the Woolf Institute, the publication provides an important multidisciplinary resource for the study of Muslim-Jewish relations. Founder Director Dr Edward Kessler co-authored a chapter with Professor Akbar Ahmed entitled: Constructive Dialogue.

The handbook invites readers to deepen their understanding of the historical, social, cultural, and political themes that impact modern-day perceptions of interfaith dialogue and to illuminate positive encounters between Muslims and Jews, as well as points of conflict, within a historical framework.

Professor Joseph T. Kelley of Merrimack College commented on the book: "Josef Meri and thirty-five other scholars lift a reader’s imagination above the current quagmire to the richness and complexities of Muslim-Jewish Relations over 13 centuries. This text is a post-modern exercise confronting the absolutes of power rhetoric with multiple perspectives from an ancient narrative."

The Handbook is available in hardback and in an affordable electronic version via Amazon or directly from Routledge.
