A concise history of India by Barbara Daly Metcalf ( Book )
49 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While early histories were often composed as handmaids of British imperialism or as products of emerging nationalist identities, this book challenges the notion that a continuous meaning can be applied to social categories such as 'caste', 'Hindu', 'Muslim', or even 'India'. The narrative focuses on the fundamentally political theme of the imaginative and instituional structures that successively changed and sustained both colonial and independent India. It also documents the social changes and the rich cultural life that were constituted in interaction with that political structure and vision. Earlier chapters focus on the period of Muslim dynasties that preceded colonial conquest, and the book concludes with the dramatic recent events of the 1990s, including economic change, religious nationalism and India's emergence as a nuclear power. Illustrations and quotations from historical sources are integral to the narrative
Making Muslim space in North America and Europe ( )
17 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Focusing on the private and public use of space, this volume explores the religious life of the new Muslim communities in North America and Europe. Unlike most studies of immigrant groups, these essays concentrate on cultural practices and expressions of everyday life rather than on the political issues that dominate today's headlines. The authors emphasize the cultural strength and creativity of communities that draw upon Islamic symbols and practices to define "Muslim space" against the background of a non-Muslim environment. -- The range of perspectives is broad, encompassing middle-class professionals, mosque congregations, factory workers in France and the north of England, itinerant African traders, and prison inmates in New York. The truism that "Islam is a religion of the word" takes on concrete meaning as these disparate communities find ways to elaborate word-centered ritual and to have the visual and aural presence of sacred words in the spaces they inhabit."

Islamic revival in British India : Deoband, 1860-1900 by Barbara Daly Metcalf ( Book )
22 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a study of the vitality of Islam in late nineteenth-century north India, Barbara Metcalf explains the response of Islamic religious scholars ( ulama) to the colonial dominance of the British and the collapse of Muslim political power. Focussing on Deoband, the most important Islamic seminary of the period, she discusses the ways in which the ulama enhanced a sense of cultural continuity in a period of alien rule. Deprived of a Muslim state, the leaders of Deoband sought to renew Islamic spiritual life by teaching early Islamic principles. To this end, they concerned themselves with popular behaviour and the education of both elite and non-elite Muslims through the spoken language, Urdu
