Cleveland E. Dodge Professor of Near Eastern Studies, Emeritus, Bernard Lewis celebrates his 100th birthday today. Lewis, who held a joint position in the Department of Near Eastern Studies and the Institute for Advanced Studies from 1974 until his retirement in 1986, has authored many books on the history of Islam, the relations of the Muslim world with the West, and the Ottoman Empire.
Lewis demonstrates how nineteenth century Europeans mythologized the region as a racial utopia in debating American slavery. Islam, in fact, clearly teaches non-discrimination, but Lewis shows that prejudice often won out over pious sentiments, as he examines how Africans were treated, depicted, and thought of from antiquity to the twentieth century. This book will foster Bernard Lewis's reputation as the doyen of Middle Eastern studies. Mr. Lewis's knowledge of Islamic history, literature, and jurisprudence is so detailed, expansive, and profoundly integrated that it is enough for him to merely refer to a period or an instance to be able to envision the entire context. -The Washington Times.
