Description

Charts the life of young Muslim men in Scotland by exploring local issues connected with family life, residential segregation and everyday experiences; national concerns around Scottishness and Scottish politics; and responses to September 11, 2001.In the aftermath of the events of September 11, 2001, followed by the bombings in London on July 7, 2005, much attention has been drawn to the everyday experiences, behaviors and attitudes of young Muslim men. Drawing upon original research, this work offers a series of innovative and critical insights into the ordinary lives of Muslim young men.Overall, the message is that although young Muslim men might engage with factors deemed to be 'national' or 'global,' the experiences that matter most are 'local': the marking on the body, the placing of the home and the character of the street are all very significant sites for the futures of young Muslim men living in Scotland.
