September 21, 2023
Steven Philip Kramer's book compares the experience of French Jews and Muslims over the longue durée, tracing their experiences and interactions in both metropolitan France and the colonies under the evolving regime of laïcité. This historical and comparative approach suggests how tensions may be resolved for peaceful co-existence.
