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.
