By Tania Saeed | Palgrave Macmillan Publishing (October 2016)
Religion, Ethnicity and the Female Voice
This book provides an interdisciplinary study which combines gender studies and security discourses, moves beyond analysis of Muslims as a single category and analyses the grassroots female Muslim experience in the UK.
