Read full description of the books:
The contributors to this volume examine, from different perspectives, the relevance of an Islamic identity in Canada. Does an Islamic identity make sense in a secular country? What does it encompass? How does it relate to national, racial, and ethnic identities? Doesn't it draw a curtain between itself and the rest of a secular nation? Does not this identity in fact give rise to the perception of the Muslim as the Other and to suspicions of non-patriotism, subversion, etc. Is there really a single Islamic culture? Doesn't Islamic identity necessarily erase historical memory and culture? Shouldn't religious faith be something private, in a secular country, in the sense that we don't ask our neighbours or workmates what faith they belong to?
CONTRIBUTORS: Mohamed Alibhai (PhD Harvard, former editor Islam in America); Karim H Karim (Carleton University); Monia Mazigh (author, Mirrors and Mirages); Asma Sayed (MacEwan University), Haroon Siddiqui (The Toronto Star), Sunera Thobani (University of British Columbia), and others.
