Looking East by Gerald MacLean

Engagingly written in an accessible style, this book demonstrates how the so-called 'conflict of civilizations' separating the Muslim East from the Christian West is a false and dangerous myth.

Britain and the Islamic World, 1558-1713, Hardback (May 2011)
Explores the interactions between Britain and the Islamic world from 1558 to 1713, showing how much scholars, diplomats, traders, captives, travellers, clerics, and chroniclers were involved in developing and describing those interactions.
Country and the City Revisited, Paperback (November 2006)
A revisionist interdisciplinary study of the transformation of England into an imperial power between 1550 and 1850.
Re-Orienting the Renaissance, Hardback (October 2005)
Explores how the Renaissance entailed a global exchange of goods, skills and ideas between East and West. The authors interrogate what may seem to be settled certainties, such as the difference between East and West, the conflict between Islam and Christianity, and the 'rebirth' of European civilization in classical Greece and Imperial Rome.
Rise of Oriental Travel, Paperback (March 2004)» View all books by Gerald MacLean
This book follows four Seventeenth-century Englishmen on their journeys around the Ottoman Empire while the British were, for the first time in history, becoming important players in the Mediterranean. This book shows that hostility between East and West is neither historical nor inevitable, but rather the result of selective memory.
