Islam and Dhimmitude : where civilizations collide by Bat Yeʼor( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study of the legal and social condition of Jews and Christians subjected to Islamic rule (the dhimmis), Bat Ye'or examines various religious and historical sources, using the new term "dhimmitude" to describe their common history and legal status. Some of these laws derive from the special status institutionalized by the Church Fathers for Jews; once Islamized, these laws were incorporated into Muslim jurisprudence applicable for Christians and Jews alike. Dhimmitude is thus discussed from the perspective of Muslim theory, and also in regard to divergent Christian attitudes to Jews and Zionism."--Jacket

Protected peoples under Islam by David Littman( Book )

8 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the centuries of Muslim domination in the Middle East and North Africa, Jews and Christians were reduced to the status of "dhimmi", i.e. juridically and socially relegated to an inferior condition of subjection and humiliation. The number of Jews who were killed as Jews, both singly and collectively, in Islamic lands in the medieval and early modern periods was greater than in Europe at the same time. The establishment of the European protectorates in the late 19th century in many countries alleviated the situation of the Jews there, but the rise in nationalism, which accompanied the restoration of their independence in the 1930s-60s, brought about anti-Jewish riots and killing. Pp. 8-12 present excerpts from books by 19th-century European travelers to Egypt and North Africa, illustrating the conditions of the Jews in these countries

The decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam : from Jihad to Dhimmitude : seventh-twentieth century by Bat Yeʼor( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study, newly translated into English, Bat Ye'or provides a lucid analysis of the dogma and strategies of jihad, offering a vast panorama of the history of Christians and Jews under the rule of Islam. A pioneer in a virgin field of research for which she coined the word "dhimmitude," the author has included in this essential work a documentary section illuminating the decline of Eastern Christianity. In two waves of Islamic expansion the Christian and Jewish populations of the Mediterranean regions and Mesopotamia, who had developed the most prestigious civilizations of the time, were conquered by jihad. Millions of Christians from Spain, Egypt, Syria, Greece, and Armenia; Latins and Slavs from southern and central Europe; as well as Jews were henceforth governed by the shari'a (Islamic law). Knowledge of this historical background is essential in order to understand contemporary events and developments so that future challenges can be faced within a context of positive religious dialogue and reconciliation
