Jerry Brotton’s fascinating book is a rich and unexpected history of the relationship built by Elizabethan England with the Islamic world. This wonderful book, packed with adventurers, merchants, musicians and intriguers, looks at the way this awareness of the Islamic world entered English culture, perhaps most famously through Shakespeare’s Othello and The Merchant of Venice but in myriad other ways too.
