About the Author

Dr Sharif Gemie is reader in History at the University of Glamorgan. He has written several books for UWP, including Galicia: A Concise History, Brittany, 1750 - 1950 and is co-editor of, At The Border: Margins and Peripheries in Modern France (2007).


"Towards the beginning of this intelligent, well-researched study of new Muslim public figures in France, the author asks of his book: "what, then, is the main topic?" before noting that it is quite difficult to respond (p. 3). The author aims to do several things in succession: revisit the debates around Islamic scarves in public schools; present the views of four quite divergent Muslim (or sort of Muslim) public figures; and trace the contours of problems occurring between Islam and the Republic. The result is a thoughtful and well-documented series of portraits and comments, well worth (enjoyably) reading as a way into some current debates in France. The book would be suitable for classes at all university levels." John R. Bowen, Washington University at St. Louis. Review for H-France.net
