Engaging with current debates about the “clash of civilizations,” this book offers a novel challenge to the notion of a monolithic Islam in opposition to a monolithic West. The essays in this book analyze a range of genres – travel narrative, canonical and non-canonical drama, and prose romance – to consider geographical areas beyond the Ottoman Empire, including Mughal India, Safavid Persia, and the Muslim regions of Southeast and Central Asia. This collection deepens our post-Saidian understanding of the complexity of real and imagined “traffic” between England and the “Islamic worlds” it encountered and constructed.
