Towards a European Islam by Jørgen S Nielsen( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores how Islam in western Europe has developed from early immigration and settlement to the point where a native generation is developing ways of being European and Muslim. England is given special attention as a case study, but as the discussion moves into the present and the future, reference is made to all of western Europe. Factors in this process not only arise from the Muslim communities themselves but also from the inherited structures of European society and state. Although the issues are complex and tense, the author is generally optimistic about the outcome.--Publisher description

Education and racism : a cross national inventory of positive effects of education on ethnic tolerance( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book gives an inventory of factors contributing to ethnic prejudice in seven countries and the role of formal education among them on the basis of national surveys. It appears that education is crucial in all the countries surveyed and contributes to more tolerant views of ethnic and national minorities in Western European countries, Poland and the United States. The positive effects of education, however, do not always counter the negative effects of personality characteristics and conservative values on ethnic prejudice. Moreover, the negative effects of less formal education may be reinforced by perceived economical competition of ethnic minorities and thereby further bolster prejudiced views of the less educated. This indicates that formal education alone is not sufficient to change prejudiced views. Other forms of socialisation transmitting values leading to open-mindedness, and the ability to secure one's economic position have to support the positive effects of formal education as well."--Jacket
