White Muslim : from LA to New York-- to jihad? by Brendan Bernhard( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It seemed the height of perversity: In response to the horrific September 11th attacks, one young American decided to convert to Islam." "And when, by chance, reporter Brendan Bernhard came upon this young man leaning on his cab outside a storefront mosque on New York's Lower East Side, he was struck by the very sight of him: Charles was a handsome, blue-eyed Californian dressed in an all-white tunic, with a big smile and charming manner ... preaching a particularly severe form of Islam." "Intrigued, Bernhard plunged into the story. Were people like Charles, or like John Walker Lindh - the young Californian captured fighting with the Taliban - aberrations, or was something going on?" "What Bernhard uncovered was more complex, surprising, and worldwide: a huge mosque on New York's Upper East Side, packed with thousands of people and more waiting to get in; an Australian would-be jihadist shocked to find himself having dinner with "that bloke on the telly," Osama bin Laden; rising numbers of Hispanic converts in the US, and deepening unrest in the suburbs of London and Paris." "Interviewing charismatic imams, security experts, converts and more, Bernhard probes this surprising subculture in a penetrating investigation that asks: Is this something we have to fear?"--Jacket
The city : New York spot news and street photography 1980-1995 by Andrew Savulich( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social and cultural transition is usually hard to gauge. New York in the 1980s and the first half of the 1990s was clearly a different place than it is now. The city was more violent and more street weird. Times Square was still wonderfully sleazy. Andrew Savulich is a photographer living and working in New York City. His work is a unique mix of spot news and street photography - capturing scenes of crime as well as everyday life. The startling immediacy of the moment prevails in his black-and-white images on which he provides handwritten captions. What at first seems like objective commentary soon reveals the photographer's dry ironic tone, at times bordering on black humour
