Bernard Lewis

Bernard Lewis is an emeritus professor in studies about the Middle East at the University of Princeton. He recently wrote What Went Wrong? Western Impact and Middle Eastern Response. He successively worked with the British and U.S. secret services. A reference member in the U.S. on Orientalism, he has endeavored to present the Islam not as a religion, not even as a culture but as a political system comparable to nazism or communism. He was also condemned by the French law for having denied the Armenian genocide.
