Metcalfe ... deserves the gratitude of everyone who teaches medieval Mediterranean history and has wondered why Sicily has been so underrepresented, in comparison to Spain and Syria, when it comes to readable surveys in English. The author's ability to access sources in all of the relevant languages permits an unusually balanced treatment that gives as much attention to Arabic as it does to Greek and Latin documentation ... A useful survey of a complicated subject that deserves the attention of our students. --American Historical Review
[The Muslims of Medieval Italy] should be much welcomed by English-language readers ... This book, focused on Muslims, amply shows the fascinating history of medieval Sicily and South Italy with their many layers of different cultures, and reveals various aspects of cross-cultural activities under the Normans. --The English Historical Review --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
