  • Confronting Political Islamby IV John M. Owen

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    How should the Western world today respond to the challenges of political Islam?

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 134.95

    Drawing upon original case studies spanning North America, Europe and Australia, Muslim Citizens in the West explores how Muslims have been both the excluded and the excluders within the wider societies in which they live.

    Biteback Publishing 2014; US$ 7.29

    This topic divides people – and it will divide readers of this book too.

    Biteback Publishing 2014; US$ 7.29

    The idea of authenticity – deliciously vague and as ubiquitous as Starbucks – has hit the spot in almost every sector of 21st-century life. But can we trust the authentic image of Nigel ‘man-of-the-people? Farage, Sarah ‘hockey mom? Palin or Gwyneth ‘inner life? Paltrow? Are punk bands, distressed denim and rustic furniture really as spontaneous... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

  • Islam and Controversyby Anshuman A. Mondal
