One Hundred Little Victories

by Andrew Lafleche

One Hundred Little Victories is the anthem for freedom of religion in America. It unapologetically documents a year in the wake of the spread of Islam in celebration of all that has been accomplished in the name of the Most Holy.

No religion in the modern world is as feared and misunderstood as Islam. It haunts the popular imagination as an extreme faith that promotes terrorism, authoritarian government, female oppression, and Civil War. In this vital narrative, Andrew Lafleche addresses this prejudiced view of Islam by offering a short history of world’s fastest growing religion in an accessible and sympathetic presentation. Showing the deep humanism of Islam and its most cherished commitments, One Hundred Little Victories portrays Islam in all its beauty and complexity.

Timely and persuasive, One Hundred Little Victories, is an elegantly written testament to the power of Allah. It’s what the unbelieving world needs right now.

Knowledge and Action (Knowledge and Space)

by Peter Meusburger

This volume explores interdependencies between knowledge, action, and space from different interdisciplinary perspectives. Some of the contributors discuss knowledge as a social construct based on collective action, while others look at knowledge as an individual capacity for action. The chapters contain theoretical frameworks as well as experimental outcomes. Readers will gain insight into key questions such as: How does knowledge function as a prerequisite for action? Why are knowledge gaps growing and not diminishing in a knowledge society? How much knowledge is necessary for action? How do various types of knowledge influence the steps from cognition to action? How do different representations of knowledge shape action? What impact have spatial conditions for the formation of knowledge? What is the relationship between social and geographical space? The contributors consider rationality in social and economic theories as well as in everyday life. Attention is also given to action theoretic approaches and rationality from the viewpoints of psychology, post-structuralism, and human geography, making this an attractive book for students, researchers and academics of various backgrounds.
