Muslim Struggle for Civil Rights

I'm happy to announce that Aitana's book "The Muslim Struggle for Civil Rights in Spain," based on her Ph.D. dissertation in the History Department at York University, has hit North America, or at least one copy that arrived in our mailbox last week. It's her first major work in English and it was, having joined her for the ride, an enormous feat. Information can be found on the publisher's website and copies can be ordered online through various sites, including Amazon.

If you haven't noticed the cover design is mine. It's admittedly cheeky, the old generation on a park bench and an immigrant in motion, waving a Spanish flag modified with Moorish arabesques. Each eyes up the other, one with its back to the horizon and one facing it.

Look out for promotional events soon.
