dence drawn directly from the evidence of Anglo-Saxon England. Most original and convincing of Beckett's conclusions is the need to see the Christian biblical paradigm through which Muslims and Arabs were perceived in the literature read in Anglo-Saxon England. Beckett gracefully and effectively shows how Muslims were perceived not only as living representations of Old Testament figures like the Midianites and Ismaelites, but also as heirs (illegitimate, perhaps) to the land in which originated the Gospel and upon which the Church based its authority. This book should be a welcome addition to a number of fields including but not limited to studies on Anglo-Saxon and medieval literature. Specialists in early Islamic studies will also find some surprises and much to benefit from in this book. The particular case focused upon in this study should also provide suggestions for far-reaching conclusions in the study of the cultural interactions between societies with little or no direct contact save shared textual corpora.
