|Chapter title||British Encounters with the 'Islamic World' 1921-1989|
This reviews the nature of British encounters with Islam from the 1921 Cairo conference at the apex of British power in the Middle East down to the Rushdie affair. As such it traces a movement from encounters largely overseas in imperial territories to a situation where former informal colonies, like Iran, were now affecting Britain's domestic politics. It also shows how British conceptions (though not necessarily understandings) of Islam changed over the period.
