"Together, [Subversives and Mavericks in the Muslim Mediterranean's] essays highlight novel ways in which the members of colonised societies were able to oppose and subvert imperial power. They confirm that effective resistance could take any form and be mounted by anyone. It was not limited to dramatic acts or grand gestures."-- (12/27/2018)
