Norman Daniel has done a fairly well job on "How Islam was misinterpreted by Western Orientalists in history".

Norman Daniel has done a fairly well job on "How Islam was misinterpreted by Western Orientalists in history". However, I wish he had used more Islamic references (works by Muslim scholars) rather than that of non-Muslims. There are sometimes things that are not correct in Islamic viewpoint and would contradict to religious techings of Islam, but I guess he has relied more on non-Muslim scholar's works in writing this book. You should read other books to know.

A very good history of many reasons why we have such a negative view of "Islam", even permeating into the secular viewpoints of today.

This is more a theological work & very disappointing for insights on the religion or any pertinence insofar as the timeline of Islam & the West save the medieval crusades period!

So my suggestion would be don't just read this book alone if you want to know about West's viewpoint on Islam. You should read other books to know more on this topic, to get the real idea.
