Reviews

“Muslims, Schooling & The Question of Self-Segregation is very useful research that deconstructs taken for granted societal assumptions, labels and notions by providing up-to-date critical analysis of policies and practices regarding community cohesion and modern multicultural society. This is an important core text for academics and policymakers working on topics of multiculturalism, integration, British Muslim identity and social justice/equality. The author’s academic arguments and grassroots insights provide robust and detailed explanations of British Muslim perspectives on education and British identity.” (Sadia Habib, The Sociological Imagination, socioloigcalimagination.org, January, 2016)

'Theoretically informed and empirically substantiated, Shamim Miah has produced a vitally important intervention on the 'integration' debates. Originally formulated and clearly presented throughout, Muslims, Schooling and the Question of Self-Segregation is a must read for both researchers and policy makers alike.' - Dr Nasar Meer, Reader in Comparative Social Policy and Citizenship, Strathclyde University.

"This book makes an incisive intellectual contribution to understanding contemporary educational politics, policy and practice, with a specific focus on the schooling of Muslim students. It brilliantly investigates several highly contested concepts segregation, integration, radicalisation, Britishness offering innovative insights into how we re-imagine educational equality and justice." Mairtin Mac an Ghail, Professor of Education at Newman University, Birmingham

"Muslims, Schooling and the Question of Self-Segregation is a compelling and penetrating analysis of civic integration and community cohesion in Britain. Demonstrating how complex choices surrounding housing and schooling have been misconstrued as 'self-segregation', Shamim Miah clearly indicates that British Muslims consistently strive to contribute, to engage and to integrate." - Paul Nesbitt-Larking, Professor of Political Science and Visiting Professor,Department of Political Science, Huron University College, Canada and School of Health and Human Sciences, University of Huddersfield, UK
