Millet, Mission and Mandate – three recent volumes on the Middle East

Three interesting volumes on various aspects of Middle Eastern history were published last year (2010), all of which address, in different ways, the position of Christians from the 16th c. onwards. All three were the result of exciting conferences, and to all three I contributed – no further comments, therefore, but see the websites …
