I haven't posted anything about Theodore Dalrymple for a while. I was mousing around a bit this afternoon, and I came across I can't quite figure out how I missed this one Dalrymple's review of Efraim Karsh's Islamic Imperialism: A History.
A few months ago I blogged an article that Karsh wrote for Commentary in which he summarized some of the claims made in his book. But don't bother to read my old post: unfortunately, the links are dead. Instead, go to this page on OpinionJournal. There you'll find Karsh's article in its entirety. I haven't yet read the book, but it's on my list.
