The Rushdie Effect

There is an excellent discussion in the FT of 13 Sept by John Lloyd called The Rushdie Effect on the role The Satanic Verses played, when the book was published on 26 Sept 1988, in bringing to the fore the clash of cultures in Britain between Muslims and mainstream society and what has happened in the intervening years. If you have never read The Satanic Verses, or any other books by Salman Rushdie, now would be a good time.
