Secularism, Theology and Islam: The Danish Social Imaginary and the Cartoon Crisis of 2005 - 2006
This thorough analysis of the Cartoon Crisis offers readers several rewards. It explains and analyzes the historical roots and as well as the contemporary social background of the so-called cartoon crisis in Denmark in 2005. Furthermore, it invites readers to a discussion of the many challenges confronting both the majority and minority's social imaginary when daily life is forced to come face to face with cultural diversity and the presence of different religions.
