Mike Hardy (Editor), Fiyaz Mughal (Editor), Sarah Markiewicz (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology or Edited Book

Abstract

How can Islam be understood in the context of internal struggles for unity and identity, a rise in ant-Muslim hate crime and continued media portrayals of violence, extremism, warfare and oppression? This important collection of essays responds to the King of Jordan's Amman Message -an initiative seeking to clarify the true nature of Islam an the nature of true Islam - and consolidates various applications of this message for our troubled times. The book presents fresh perspectives on a frequently misrepresented religion and offers a platform for debate about Islam's place within a European context, as well a the role that faith and other communities can play in seeking peace and reconciliation.
