Why the French Dont Like Headscarves: Islam, the State, and Public Space by John R. Bowen

Why the French Dont Like Headscarves explains why the French government decided to ban religious clothing from public schools, and why the 2004 law, which targeted Islamic headscarves, created such a fury. John Bowen, an anthropologist who was living in France at the time, concludes that the French decision came from, among other things, a century-old sensitivity to the presence of religion in schools and a media-driven frenzy. Written in engaging prose, this book is the first comprehensive analysis of this subject, one which speaks to tensions and debates well beyond Frances borders. Book jacket.
