The June/July First Things has the following brief, uncredited review of Robert Spencer's The Myth of Islamic Tolerance: How Islamic Law Treats Non-Muslims (review not yet available online):
"This book might be described as an extended bill of indictment against Islam and a debunking of the still commonly heard claim that Islam has been and is tolerant of minorities. In addition to the editor, authors include Robert Wistrich, Daniel Pipes, and Bat Ye'or--the last the author of the recently published Eurabia and other books that have alerted the West to the reality of 'dhimmitude,' meaning the subservient place of Christians and Jews under Islamic rule. As a bill of indictment, it is subject to the complaint that it does not include everything that needs to be said on the subject, but what it does say is necessary and relentlessly grim reading."
