Muslim Portraits: Everyday Lives in India
Indiana University Press, 2010 - Religion - 142 pages
Twelve narratives offer portraits of Muslims in India today, recounting their stories, predicaments, aspirations, and the highs and lows of their lives. Intimately told and stripped of jargon, yet nuanced and incisive, these essays portray individuals from many walks of life -- men and women, young and old, from various regions of India. Scholars, students, and general readers will welcome this collection and its emphasis on the everyday and on multifaceted social positions and relationships.
