Summary
'More and more Aboriginal people are becoming Muslim, this book asks why. Based on both interviews and historical research, it is the only national survey of this growing phenomenon. The author brings together stories of Australia's Indigenous Muslims, from histories told by descendants of Afghan cameleers and Malay pearl-divers, to the deeply reflective accounts of contemporary Indigenous converts. The 50 people interviewed describe dramatic moments of self empowerment, from women's decision to adopt the hijab as an expression of their deepening faith, to the resistance of male prison converts to all forms of extremism.' -- back cover
