Hardcover, ID: 209454361

Philadelphia, PA: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1998. "Readers of UNBOWED will have the unique opportunity to sit in a series of intensely personal conversations between Messaoudi and renowned journalist Elisabeth Schemla. In their discussions, Messaouidi goves a first-hand perspective of the situation in her homeland. She remembers the Algeria of her youth, recounts the changes that have gradually consumed her country, and laments the horrifying realities that face Algerian women today." This book has 166 pages.. ISBN: 0-8122-1657-1. First Paperback Edition {First Printing}. Pictorial Softcover. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Islam and Politics of Algeria, Muslim Women in Algeria. Catalogs: History, Religion, Health and Nutrition, Biography., University of Pennsylvania Press, 1998, Voice of India, New Delhi, 2014. 5th or later edition. Softcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. History is a very potent subject. Politics can be, and very often is, based on it. A nation which forgets, or falsifies, or wilfully ignores, or glosses over the lessons of its history is a nation heading towards doom. And, conversely, when a nation is intended to be sent to its doom, a process of falsification of its history can be profitably launched. Indian "history", as it is formulated, taught, and propagated today, has been the handiwork of Leftist "intellectuals", ever since Leftist intellectualism came into vogue. And since destruction of national identity is one of the basic tenets of Leftist ideology, it is no wonder that Indian history, as an Academic subject, has been falsified on a grand scale, with the sole aim and intention of uprooting and destroying India`s national identity and ethos. Voice of India publications have contributed a great deal towards exposing most of the fallacies and falsehoods perpetrated by Leftist historians, and their secularist fellow-travellers, in respect of Medieval and post-medieval history. There is, however, one remote period of history, or prehistory, which, in spite of its remoteness, has come to acquire a major propaganda-value for Leftists and their ilk - the period of the so-called "Aryan Invasion of India". A race of people, called the "Aryans", is supposed to have invaded India somewhere around 2000-1500 BC from the north-west. These Aryans, after centuries of Warfare and bloodshed, are supposed to have destroyed, or driven south-wards, or subjugated and absorbed (as lower castes) most of the natives in the North of the "subcontinent", and then themselves occupied the Northern areas. Originally formulated by European scholars, mainly for imperialistic reasons, this theory has been perfected by Indian Leftists into a powerful weapon to be used against Indian nationalism. The theory has been accepted on such a Scale that any textbook or scholarly book the World over, which deals with, or refers to, India`s early history, mentions the Aryan Invasion of India in the second Millennium BC, as if it were a Natural and indisputable part of proven history. To the Leftist propagandists, however, the theory Means much more. It means that just as the British and the Muslim invaders came from outside, so also the Aryan invaders came from outside. Hence, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism are all equally foreign to India; or, conversely, all three are equally Indian. Further, it means that just as Christianity and Islam were imposed on Indians by foreign invaders, so was Hinduism imposed on native Indians (Dravidians) by foreign invaders (Aryans). For the Leftist, of course, the matter does not end there. He goes further and propounds that while the Aryans conquered India and reduced its natives to the Level of lower castes within their social structure and hierarchy, in the name of Hinduism, the other invaders sought to liberate the natives from this bondage, in the name of Islam and Christianity. Hence these Original natives, the "Dravidians", must reject Hinduism and align with Islam and Christianity! Incidentally, the Aryan invasion theory is just one part of a larger scheme which seeks to brand India as a kind of Imperialists` paradise, into which people of different races and Cultures poured in at various points of time; an area, therefore, with no native people of its own, to which no people can lay claim, and which belongs to anyone who has the power to acquire overlordship over it. The first section of the book deals with the question of Hindu Nationalism in the context of the Aryan invasion theory, and makes it absolutely clear that Hindu Nationalism is identical with Indian Nationalism, irrespective of whether any Aryan invasion from outside took place or not. The second section examines the evidence presented and the arguments Advanced by invasi Printed Pages: 424., Voice of India, New Delhi, 2014, Voice of India, New Delhi, 2014. 5th or later edition.

Becoming Muslim: Western Women's Conversions to Islam (Culture, Mind and Society) - used book

ISBN: 1403976112

ID: 5284623

While Islam has become a controversial topic in the West, a growing number of Westerners find powerful meaning in Islam. Becoming Muslim is an ethnographic study based on in-depth interviews with Swedish and American women who have converted to Islam. Proceeding from the women's life-stories, the author explores the appeal of Islam to some Western women and the personal meaning assigned to the religion. While conversion is often perceived as entailing a dramatic change in worldview, the women's experiences point to an equally important continuity. Notably, the conversion is triggered by particular personal ideas and quests, and within Islam the women can further explore already salient thoughts. The work appeals to students in the fields of anthropology, religious studies, psychology, and women's studies, interested in identity, conversion, and gender. anthropology,cultural,gender and sexuality,gender studies,humanities,islam,politics and social sciences,religion,religion and spirituality,religious studies Islam, Palgrave Macmillan
