@book{fds328277,
   Author = {Lawrence, BB},
   Title = {The Koran in English: A Biography},

   Publisher = {Princeton University Press},
   Year = {2017},
   Month = {June},
   ISBN = {1400887798},
   Abstract = {The untold story of how the Arabic Qur'an became the English
             Koran For millions of Muslims, the Qur'an is sacred only in
             Arabic, the original Arabic in which it was revealed to the
             Prophet Muhammad in the seventh century; to many Arab and
             non-Arab believers alike, the book literally defies
             translation. Yet English translations exist and are growing,
             in both number and importance. Bruce Lawrence tells the
             remarkable story of the ongoing struggle to render the
             Qur'an's lyrical verses into English—and to make English
             itself an Islamic language.},

   Abstract = {classic perspectives on violence, putting into productive
             conversation the thought of well-known theorists and

             historically contingent, and must be contextualized to be
             understood. The goal is to examine how we speak or represent

   Title = {Muslims renegotiating marginality in contemporary
             Ethiopia},
   Journal = {Muslim World},
   Volume = {104},

   Year = {2014},

   Abstract = {Ethiopian Muslims have only had access to public space and
             opportunity for religious self-definition and collective
             influence since 1991. During little more than two decades,
             how have they advanced subjective agency within the
             political constraints of the current government, the
             Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front or EPRDF?
             This article addresses that question by backgrounding the
             history of Islamic expansion into Ethiopia, tracing Muslim
             engagement with Christian political elites over several
             hundred years, till the latter part of the 21st century.
             After the deposition of Haile Selasse in 1974, the DERG
             assumed power and in the name of a socialist agenda,
             suppressed all religions from 1975-1991. DERG socialism has
             been replaced by EPRDF pluralism, yet the structural
             constraints of the latter have weakened the efforts of
             Ethiopian Muslims to find their rightful place in the public
             square. Abetted and assisted by overseas immigrant
             communities, in both Western Europe and North America,
             Ethiopian Muslims continue to contest securitization and
             marginalization by the state, even as they struggle with
             regional, national and transnational issues that impact all
             Muslim identity politics in the second decade of the 21st
             century. © 2014 Hartford Seminary.},
