Hi folks. Here are the books you will need for my course at the New School, Europe and Islam: Encounters Between Christianity and Islam, 700-1700.
Other (mostly short) readings will be assigned, which will be posted online; but these three books are required. They can be purchased from the New School online bookstore, at the Barnes & Noble store at 18th and Fifth, or from online retailers (Amazon links below). Some libraries may also have these books: use worldcat.org to search locally.
