New Book Recommendation: Education integration challenges: The case of Australian Muslims

Each week recent purchases are placed on the new book displays inside the library, and eBooks are made immediately available to use. You can view and subscribe to the New Library Books list online. For instructions on how to borrow an eBook by downloading it; check out our eBook LibGuide. Some eBooks require logging in with your JCU username and password; additional software will need to be installed to download books to a digital bookshelf. Most eBooks can be read online without downloading extra software

A title of interest this week is:

Education integration challenges: The case of Australian Muslims, edited by Dr. Abe W. Ata.
Call number: 305.6970994 EDU
A summary of the book states:
A collections of essays from different perspectives that explore issues and challenges for Muslim communities in Australia after September 11.

As a JCU library reviewer I noted some of the essays are related to education and are Australian specific issues but they range across topics as diverse as gender, employment, sexuality, crime and the justice system, multiculturalism, integration, assimilation and acculturation, and society perceptions both from the Muslim Australian community and of the wider Australian society. The title would be of interest to a range of disciplines.
