The West has become obsessed with Muslims, constantly classifying them as either "moderate" or "extreme." Reacting against this dehumanizing tendency, Jeremy Seabrook and Imran Ahmed Siddiqui show us the daily life of poor Muslims in India and sheds light on what lies behind India's "economic miracle." The authors examines life in Muslim communities in Kolkata, home to some of the most disadvantaged people in India, giving a voice to their views, values and feelings. We see that Muslims are no different from those of other faiths -- work, family and survival are the overwhelming preoccupations of the vast majority. Although most are observant in their religion, there is no trace of the malevolence or poverty-fuelled extremism attributed to them. This enlightening and elegantly written book will be of great interest to students and practitioners of development and anyone who wants a more realistic picture of Muslim life and modern India.

Über den Autor

Jeremy Seabrook is a researcher and writer. He is the author of The Refuge and the Fortress: Britain and the Flight from Tyranny 1933 - 2008 (2008), Consuming Cultures: Globalization and Local Lives (2006), Travels in the Skin Trade (Pluto, 2001) and Cities (Pluto, 2007). Imran Ahmed Siddiqui is a writer and journalist. He works at the Telegraph newspaper in Kolkata.


In the poor Muslim bustis of Kolkata, where 'India Shining' remains a cruel mirage, and 'Communism' equals urban renewal, Seabrook and Siddiqui chronicle dreams betrayed by history. In the most profound sense, this book is a voyage of solidarity that tells truth to the lies of globalization and Islamophobia. -- Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums
