Bat Ye’or, born in Cairo, became a stateless refugee in 1957 and a British citizen by marriage in 1959, before settling in Switzerland. She became the pioneer researcher on ‘dhimmitude’ – the inferior status of subjected non-Muslims. She has been described by Sir Martin Gilbert in the third volume of his History of the 20th Century as “the acknowledged expert on the plight of Jews and Christians in Muslim lands”.

The Dhimmi: Jews and Christians under Islam (French, 1980; English, 1985) gave Bat Ye’or international recognition. It is an essential introduction to The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam. From Jihad to Dhimmitude (1991;1996).Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilizations Collide (2002), completes her trilogy on the study of ‘dhimmitude.’ Bat Ye'or's latest work, Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis (2005) focuses on Europe’s transformation into ‘Eurabia’ over the past 30 years.
