Bernard Lewis is one of America's foremost scholars on the history of the Middle East. The Muslim Discovery of Europe certainly demonstrates this, as he shows the political, social and economic mis-cues between Europe and the Near East over the last 1000 years. Lewis discusses at length this lack of interest in Europe by the wealthy and powerful in the MIddle East - in spite of the minor nusiance of the Crusades, the Abbysids, Il Khanids (Mongols) and later the Ottomans were primarily concerned with the internal doctrnal disputes and the control of trade routes to India and China.
