Long viewed as Spain’s "most Moorish city," Granada is now home to a growing Muslim population of Moroccan migrants and European converts to Islam. Mikaela H. Rogozen-Soltar examines how various residents of Granada mobilize historical narratives about the city’s Muslim past in order to navigate tensions surrounding contemporary ethnic and religious pluralism. Focusing particular attention on the gendered, racial, and political dimensions of this new multiculturalism, Rogozen-Soltar explores how Muslim-themed tourism and Islamic cultural institutions coexist with anti-Muslim sentiments.

Abraham H. Maslow gehörte zusammen mit Carl R. Rogers und Erich Fromm zu den Begründern und wichtigsten Vertretern der Humanistischen Psychologie. Seine Motivationstheorie, die das menschliche Handeln aus gestuften Bedürfnissen heraus erklärt, geht von einem ganzheitlichen positiven Menschenbild aus. Der letzten Stufe liegt eine geistige Zielsetzung zugrunde, die erst die eigentliche befriedigende Selbstverwirklichung ermöglicht.

Nominiert für den Deutschen Jugendliteraturpreis 2016 (Jugendjury) Von der preisgekrönten Autorin von ›Verkauft‹ – Ein Jugendroman über die Schreckensherrschaft der Roten Khmer in Kambodscha Als Arn Chorn Pond noch ein Junge ist, übernimmt das radikale kommunistische Regime der Roten Khmer die Macht in Kambodscha. Es folgt ein schrecklicher Völkermord, dem zwei Millionen Menschen zum Opfer fallen – ein Viertel der gesamten Bevölkerung. Arn hat überlebt. Doch der Preis dafür war hoch. Denn er ist selbst zum Täter geworden. Und es ist ihm schwer gefallen, den Tiger in seinem Herzen zu bändigen. Schonungslos und brutal erzählt Patricia McCormick von den Killing Fields. Es braucht nachhaltig beeindruckende Bücher wie dieses, um aufzuzeigen, zu welchen Grausamkeiten Menschen fähig sind und welche Fehler sich niemals wiederholen dürfen.

The idea behind The Kpim of Feminism was rooted in the mind of Fada Iroegbu in 2004 following a friendly but heated argument he had with Mrs.Wioletta Ukagba (the wife of one of the current co-editors of this book) who challenged Fada Iroegbu to direct his sharp brain and pen to the defence of women, especially the Nigeria women, who were and still are passing through various kinds of trans-valuation of values, economic exploitation, cultural and scientific manipulations, political marginalization and irredentism and various shades of sexualisation, harassment, exploitation, and commercialization. Fada Iroegbu took up this challenge to kpiminize womanhood, but unfortunately was unable to completely realise his dream before death struck. As it is with many great and indefatigable minds or thinkers who left behind unfinished works, we, his friends, family, interlocutors, well-wishers, men and women of good will, have come together to actualize one of his felt knowledge dreams. The fight for equality between women and men can sometimes not only be exaggerated but also plunged in controversy we cannot fathom The search for the truth about the relationship that ought to exist between male and female should constitute The Kpim of Feminism Dr. George Uzoma Ukagba, Editor, University of Benin In light of the word feminism conjuring up different images to different people, The Kpim of Feminism reflects the sensitivity and objectivity to the concept of feminism by scholars drawing from their fields and life experiences The book insists that women and men be encouraged to emancipate and empower one another together. Dr. Obioma Des-Obi, Editor, Imo State University The Kpim of Feminism, a rare harvest of academic erudition from across the globe, showcases the different modalities from which issues, theories and debates on feminism and other gender-related polemics, past, present and future, could be considered. Dr. Iks J. Nwankwor, Editor, University of Uyo Without mincing words, this book is a welcome intellectual assembly and has come out at the right time with deep critical insights and values for students, researchers, and public and policy issues in both local and global prospects.
