View: 4988Entdeckungsreise zu einer Welt, die zum Schweigen verurteilt, aber mitten unter uns ist Wie erträgt man das Vergehen der Zeit, wenn man zur Untätigkeit gezwungen ist? Wie geht man um mit dem Verlust derer, die man geliebt hat? Wer trägt das Erbe weiter? Richard, emeritierter Professor, kommt durch die zufällige Begegnung mit den Asylsuchenden auf dem Oranienplatz auf die Idee, die Antworten auf seine Fragen dort zu suchen, wo sonst niemand sie sucht: bei jenen jungen Flüchtlingen aus Afrika, die in Berlin gestrandet und seit Jahren zum Warten verurteilt sind. Und plötzlich schaut diese Welt ihn an, den Bewohner des alten Europas, und weiß womöglich besser als er selbst, wer er eigentlich ist. Jenny Erpenbeck erzählt auf ihre unnachahmliche Weise eine Geschichte vom Wegsehen und Hinsehen, von Tod und Krieg, vom ewigen Warten und von all dem, was unter der Oberfläche verborgen liegt.
The Geoexpansion of the Muslim World
Author: Barry A. Vann
Publisher: Prometheus Books
View: 8709In this unique analysis of Muslim population shifts in the Western world, geographer Barry A. Vann provides fresh insights into the theological factors that play into these demographic trends. Vann examines the “imagined geographies” of Muslims with a puritan orientation. People with this mind-set are little inclined to accept a pluralistic, multicultural, live-and-let-live concept of society. And conflicts between conflicting value systems are almost inevitable. Vann notes that this purist approach to Islam is certainly not universal among Muslims, and there are many varying interpretations that are more moderate in outlook. Nonetheless, the undeniable theological background of all Muslim communities colors their values and attitudes, and must be taken into consideration when attempting to understand the potential conflicts between contiguous Muslim and non-Muslim groups. Given the fact that the population of Muslim immigrants is growing in traditionally Christian and increasingly secular countries of the Western world while the resident populations are either stagnant or declining, Vann’s insightful analysis of the ways in which Islam influences perceptions of community and geography is of great relevance.
