Faith, Power and Territory: A Handbook of British Islam

Recorded on June 25, 2008

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The growth of Islam in the United Kingdom and increasing Islamization are presenting new challenges in British society.  Patrick Sookhdeo's new book, Faith, Power and Territory, seeks to provide an easy-to-use resource to help readers understand Islam in Britain today, the way in which Islam is developing there, and Islam's influence on the country.  Sookhdeo asks penetrating questions about the way in which the Muslim communities in the UK may develop in the future and how British authorities and institutions appear to be yielding in some cases to the process of Islamization.

Patrick Sookhdeo has doctorates from London University's School of Oriental and African Studies, Western Seminary and Nashtoah House Episcopal Seminary.  He is Adjunct Professor at the George C. Marshall European Centre for Security Studies, Senior Visiting Fellow at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, Visiting Fellow at Cranfield University, UK, and also guest lecturer at the NATO school, Oberammergau.  He is also a Fellow of the Security Institute of the UK and has served as cultural adviser for Iraq and Afghanistan.
