Samuel Johnson's Attitude Toward Islam: A Study of His Oriental Readings and Writings
The main focus of this book is to demonstrate how Samuel Johnson's 'Irene, Rasselas' and his other Oriental tales share, with previous Oriental writings, a common focus on Islam, Arabs, their culture, and political systems. His assessments of and observations on Islam and Arab cultures show that he looked at them less objectively.
