People like us : how arrogance is dividing Islam and the West. /

by Aly, Waleed.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Picador 2007Description: xx, 277 p.Summary: "No two civilisations have spoken so many words about each other in recent years as those of Islam and the West. And no two seem to have communicated less. As a Muslim born and raised in Australia, Waleed Aly stands at the intersection of these two civilisations. From there he sees a world of radical misunderstandings, perpetuated by the inability of each to look beyond the stereotypes and truly comprehend the other. People Like Us examines the cultural chasm between Islam and the West by confronting the issues at the heart of the misunderstanding: women, jihad, secularism, terrorism, Reformation and modernity. Drawing on the author's knowledge of Western and Islamic intellectual traditions, it provides a fascinating analysis of these subjects, exposing the depth of ignorance surrounding them and the role of both Muslim and Western media in reinforcing stereotypes. Above all, it argues that the only way to avoid perpetual and escalating conflict between Islam and the West is to acknowledge one indisputable and powerful truth: that we are all complex, nuanced people. We must resist the mutual temptation to assume that the other's problems could be solved if only they became more like us. This is a brave and provocative book of rare insight, and an indispensable contribution to understanding our troubled world." -- Publisher's websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Muslim-Australians & local government : grassroots strategies to improve relations between Muslim and non-Muslim-Australians : final research report. /

by Wise, Amanda | Ali, Jan.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Department of Immigration and Citizenship 2008Description: PDF.Summary: The Centre for Research on Social Inclusion was commissioned by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship to conduct qualitative, empirical research to investigate community-based activities for improving relations between Muslim and non-Muslim- Australians. The focus of the project was Muslim-Australians who have increasingly experienced racism and discrimination 'particularly since the Cronulla riots' in the face of recent global events such as the terrorist attacks of September 11th, and the London and the Bali bombings. Through an examination of a variety of initiatives and projects developed by local councils and Muslim and non-Muslim non-government organisations, the project investigated the most effective community-based activities for improving relations between Muslim and non-Muslim-Australians.Availability: No items available

Race, faith and gender : converging discriminations against Muslim women in Victoria : the ongoing impact of September 11, 2001 /

by Islamic Women's Welfare Council of Victoria.

Publisher: Northcote, Vic. Islamic Women's Welfare Council of Victoria 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The experiences of Muslim women in Victoria after September 11 documented in this research demonstrate that instances of racism are not simply isolated, one-off incidents. Racism against Muslim women has a pervasive and persistent cyclical pattern, characterised by quiet periods of everyday racisms and incivility, which are interrupted by sharp rises in racism after international incidents of Muslim-related terrorism. This research demonstrated that non-Muslim Victorians' perceptions of Muslims in general, and Muslim women in particular, are complex but nonetheless inextricably tied to Muslim women?s experiences of racism. What non-Muslim Victorians think of Muslim women affects these women?s lives and their potential for integration. It is important to note that, at least for Muslim women who participated in this study, it was the fear of racism and not their mistreatment by their society or religion that restricted their freedom and independence. Our research confirmed that non-Muslim Victorians and Muslim women feel a growing divide in relations between Muslims and non-Muslims. Muslim women feel it through a growing sense of marginalisation and non-Muslim Victorians feel it in the unfair treatment they perceive Muslims to receive. For Victorians on both sides of the divide, there is a strong desire for contact and exchange of ideas, information and common experiences.Availability: (1)
