About this product
- DescriptionThis book focuses on religious beliefs and practices of the Christian, Hindu, Muslim and Sikh communities in one of the most multicultural parts of Britain. Based on an in depth study of 3418 teenagers in Walsall, and using data from other UK studies, it demonstrates that religion is a decisive factor in understanding communities and individuals. It shows that if we do t take religion into account we will miss crucial insights that have implications for teachers, social workers, health professionals, politicians and those developing social policy. This research also makes a contribution towards understanding radical Islam in the UK today, thus is highly topical. It illustrates the power of religion on young people today (and especially young Muslims) and how it influences their lives and their actions.
