Fair Justice
The Bradford Disturbances, the Sentencing and the Impact

Author: Christopher Allen; Publisher: FAIR
ISBN: 11904648002; Date of Publication: 2003

Published by the Forum Against Islamaphobia and Racism (FAIR), this report looks at the sentencing of young Muslim men incriminated in the July 2001 Oldham and Bradford troubles, which are serving as a further cause for alienation and disenchantment. The comparison is made with similar offences in Northern Ireland, and in the Brixton Riots, which prompted far milder punitive measures. The report focuses on aspects of Islamophobia in the criminal justice system and the political motivation behind the sentencing.

Islam in Britain 1558 - 1685

Author: Nabil Matar; Publisher: Cambrdge University Press
ISBN: 0521622336; Date of Publication: October 1998

This book examines the impact of Islam on early modern Britain. Christian-Muslim interaction at this time was not, as is often thought, primarily adversarial; rather, there was extensive cultural, intellectual and missionary engagement with Islam. The author documents conversion both to and from Islam, and surveys reactions to these conversions. He investigates the impact of the Qur'an and sufism, not to mention coffee, on British culture, and cites extensive interaction of Britons with Islam through travel, in London coffee houses, in church, among converts to and from Islam, in sermons and in plays.
