Reviews
"Offers a grim lesson about religious and racial repression in our contemporary age of contested faiths."
--David Levering Lewis, author of God's Crucible: Islam and the Making of Europe, 570-1215

"Carr deftly narrates the complex events leading up to this little-known but horrific episode as a warning against religious intolerance and xenophobia."
--Publishers Weekly

"A fascinating account of perhaps the first major episode of European ethnic cleansing and, just as importantly, the story of the beginning of the conviction that 'blood' matters more than belief; a conviction that led, in the end, to modern racism."
--Kwame Anthony Appiah
