(p.1) 1 Introduction
The Divergence of Judaism and Islam

Michael M. Laskier

Yaacov Lev

University Press of Florida

This chapter analyzes the evolution of Jewish–Muslim relations in the modern and contemporary periods, the main literature in the field, and the components of the divergent roads taken by Jews and Muslims, which reflect the differences and tensions that dominate their relationship. The authors go beyond an emphasis on ties within the Arabo-Muslim world and the effect of the Arab–Israeli conflict to discuss the cohabitation of Muslim and Jewish groups in the new geographies of the European Union, Australia, and Central Asia. In addition to announcing the socioeconomic, political, and cultural context in which the book's essays are located, the chapter summarizes the contributing scholars' theoretical/methodological approaches and briefly presents the essays that comprise each of the fifteen chapters.

Keywords:   divergence, Ottoman Turkey, Central Asia, Oceania, Middle East, North Africa, Arab World, modernization, commonalities, interdependence
