Summary
Looking East examines how English encounters with the Ottoman Empire helped shape national identities and imperial ambitions at a time when the English were seeking to find a place for themselves in the larger world beyond ther insular realm. Engagingly written in an accessible style that will appeal to non-academic readers as well as scholars, this book demonstrates how the so-called 'conflict of civilizations' separating the Muslim East from the Christian West is a false and dangerous myth
