    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 130.00

    Seeing Hitler's Germany is the first fully researched, wide-ranging study of commercial tourism under the swastika.

    Muss sich unter Muslimen in Deutschland etwas ändern? Viele dürften die Frage mit „Ja“ beantworten. Offenbar gibt es genügend Anlass zu „Islamkritik“. Leider missbrauchen dies viele als Vehikel für pure Ressentiments. Doch das darf nicht dazu führen, jede Form von Kritik in den Wind zu schlagen und das Bild vom gelebten Islam schön zu färben. Beide... more...

  • Islamfeindlichkeitby Thorsten Gerald Schneiders

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2011; US$ 46.65

    „Islamkritik“ ist eines der Schlagworte unserer Zeit. Doch dahinter verstecken sich oftmals nur pure Ressentiments.

Beide Extreme dominieren zu häufig die öffentlichen Diskussionen. Der vorliegende... more...
