Muslim Reformers in Iran and Turkey: The Paradox of Moderation"

Staff and students of Islamic Middle Eastern and the Arab World at large will find a recent publication of mine " Us and Them: Muslim Christian relations and social harmony in Australia" by the Australian Academic Press, of great interest. The publication has been recommended as a reference to all NSW government schools, and is being nominated for the Prime Minister's Book Award in 2010.

Several of the chapters contain findings from a DIAC funded national survey conducted in several hundred SCHOOLS including Catholic , Anglican, and Muslim.
I have enclosed the table of contents and back cover as a broad guiding statement, below, as your staff may consider using it as a primary reference.

We would value you drawing the attention to them by copying the flyer attached to them,; or directing them to the Australian Academic Press : http://www.australianacademicpress.com.au/Publications/Books/4-921513190.html

Thanking you.

  1. Dear All:

    I was present in Melbourne, Australia during the Parliament of World Religions Conference. I must say in all honesty that what Mike Ghouse presented was magnificient research on pluralism and reformers in Islam.

    Congratulations for the wonderful work that has been recognised on Global Scale.
