New Book Announcement - Introduction to Islam by Tariq Ramadan (OUP)

October 2017
Introduction to Islam
Tariq Ramadan
Whether the issue is violence, terrorism, women's rights, or slavery, Muslims today are expected to provide answers and to justify what Islam is-or is not. But little opportunity exists, either in the media or in society as a whole, to describe Islam. In simple, direct language, An Introduction to Islam introduces readers to Islam and to its principles, rituals, diversity, and evolution.

ANN: La trinchera austral. La sociedad argentina ante la Primera Guerra Mundial, by María Inés Tato

Usually overlooked by Argentine historiography, the First World War nevertheless had a deep impact on its local contemporaries: it put foreign policy on the agenda of public discussion; polarized society; encouraged the citizens’ mobilization, and gave new impetus to the debates around national identity.
From a global history and a cultural history of the war, this book aims to reconstruct its repercussions on Argentine society and its transformations throughout the conflict, focusing on social mobilization and on cultural mediators.
