What is included with this book?


This ethnographic study investigates for the first time in any significant depth the literacy practices associated with the religion of Islam as they are shaped, lived and experienced within a typical Muslim community in the United Kingdom. It seeks to counterbalance prevailing views on such practices which have often been misrepresented and misunderstood.
