Sufism is a growing and global phenomenon, far from the declining relic it was once thought to be. This book brings together the work of fourteen leading experts to explore systematically the key themes of Sufism's new global presence, from Yemen to Senegal via Chicago and Sweden. The contributors look at the global spread and stance of such major actors as the Ba 'Alawiyya, the 'Afropolitan' Tijaniyya, and the Gülen Movement. They map global Sufi culture, from Rumi to rap, and ask how global Sufism accommodates different and contradictory gender practices. They examine the contested and shifting relationship between the Islamic and the universal: is Sufism the timeless and universal essence of all religions, the key to tolerance and co-existence between Muslims and non-Muslims? Or is it the purely Islamic heart of traditional and authentic practice and belief? Finally, the book turns to politics. States and political actors in the West and in the Muslim world are using the mantle and language of Sufism to promote their objectives, while Sufis are building alliances with them against common enemies. This raises the difficult question of whether Sufis are defending Islam against extremism, supporting despotism against democracy, or perhaps doing both.

Auf der Suche nach den Spuren einer algerischen Identitat taucht die mehrfach preisgekronte algerische Schriftstellerin, Historikerin und Filmemacherin Assia Djebar in ihren Romanen, Kurzgeschichten und Filmen in die Tiefen eines postkolonialen Raumes ein. Dieser ist ebenso gepragt durch dunkle und abgelagerte Schichten des lange Vergessenen, wie er zugleich die Oberflache der Gegenwart im Sprung auf die Zukunft hin tangiert. Djebar spurt einer paradoxen Hassliebe der Kulturen nach, die aus der kolonialen Situation entsprungen ist und sowohl die algerische als auch die franzosische Identitat pragt. Ihre postkoloniale Literatur entwirft einen Raum zwischen den Kulturen, innerhalb dessen sie ihr Schreiben uber Geschichte praktiziert. Geschichtsarbeit ist hier sowohl Dekonstruktion bekannter Geschichtsbilder wie innovative Montage. Das Buch umspannt die Schaffensperiode der Autorin von 1980 bis 2003 und thematisiert unter anderem die algerische Kolonialgeschichte sowie die politischen Spannungen der 1990er Jahre zwischen Islamismus und Nationalstaat.

This insightful book is by far the broadest examination of traditional Cajun culture ever assembled. It goes beyond the stereotypes and surface treatment given to Cajuns by the popular media and examines the great variety of cultural elements alive in Cajun culture today--cooking, music, storytelling, architecture, arts and crafts, and festivals, as well as traditional occupations such as fishing, hunting, and trapping. It not only gives fascinating descriptions of elements in Cajun life that have been woven into the fabric of American history and folklore; it also explains how they came to be. Cajun Country reveals the historical background of the Cajun people, who migrated to Louisiana as exiles from their Canadian homeland, and it shows their folklife as a living and ongoing legacy that enriches America.
