The Shade of Swords: Jihad and the Conflict Between Islam and Christianity


The Shadow of Swords traces the origins of jihad in the struggle against oppression that was part of the earliest consciousness of Muslims. The conflict between Islam and Christianity began from the time of the Prophet himself and has acquired myriad shapes over fourteen hundred years. Akbar explains how jihad thrives on complex and shifting notions of persecution, victory and sacrifice.
