Event description

Description

The Making of Community in a Post-9/11 World

Blackwell's Bookshop and Edinburgh University Press invite you to join Stefano Bonino to celebrate the publication of his book Muslims in Scotland

About the book

The experience of being a Muslim in Scotland today is shaped by the global and national post-9/11 shift in public attitudes towards Muslims, and is infused by the particular social, cultural and political Scottish ways of dealing with minorities, diversity and integration.

This book explores the settlement and development of Muslim communities in Scotland, highlighting the ongoing changes in their structure and the move towards a Scottish experience of being Muslim. This experience combines a sense of civic and social belonging to Scotland with a strong religious and ideological commitment to Islam.

Stefano Bonino is Lecturer in the Department of Social Sciences at Northumbria University and Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. He has published academic articles on various aspects of Muslim life in Great Britain in Political Studies Review, Contemporary Islam, Scottish Affairs, Patterns of Prejudice and Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs.
