Synopsis

Groundwork Being Muslim by Haroon Siddiqui

A series of books for Key stages 3 - 4, aimed at secondary school librarians, these 4 titles provide an overview of key and contemporary political and social issues covered at this stage of the curriculum. Ground Work delivers easy to access information and the background behind these sometimes controversial topics in a lively and accessible way. Each book in the series addresses key questions about pressing social issues from: what is climate change and where do we go from here?; globalisation and the widening gap between the rich and the rest of the population; to bridging the gap between different cultures and religions; and the controversial topic of genocide and who is at threat from this ultimate crime against humanity? This book tackles many controversial topics such as a summary of the impact of terrorism on Muslims as well as dissecting Western discourse, with specific focus on the media.

Reviews

'This is a book that can help teachers to deal clearly and directly with current contentious issues involving Islam. It is refreshingly unequivocal and highly effective in exposing double standards and inconsistencies in contemporary media coverage relating to Islam.'
