Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "My name is Safia Dirie. My family has always been my mum, Hoyo, and my two older brothers, Ahmed and Abdullahi. I don't really remember Somalia - I'm an East London girl, through and through. But now Abo, my father, is coming from Somalia to live with us, after 12 long years. How am I going to cope?" Safia knows that there will be changes ahead but nothing has prepared her for the reality of dealing with Abo's cultural expectations, her favourite brother Ahmed's wild ways, and the temptation of her cousin Firdous's party-girl lifestyle. Safia must come to terms with who she is - as a Muslim, as a teenager, as a poet, as a friend, but most of as a daughter to a father she has never known. Safia must find her own place in the world, so both father and daughter can start to build the relationship they both long for. From Somalia With Love is one girl's quest to discover who she is - a story that, while rooted in Somali and Muslim life, strikes a chord with young people everywhere.

Download or read book Heelloy written by John William Johnson and published by Indiana University Press. This book was released on 1996 with total page 270 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a completely new edition of the only scholarly work on the poetry of popular and mass culture among a people who are renowned for their passion for poetry. Johnson traces the heello movement from its origins as a youth culture which in its early days was concerned with themes of love and pleasure. It later became the medium for freedom songs in the preindependence period, for the expression of modern political ideas, political protest, rallying songs and social comment, many examples of which are cited in this volume. Heello became the most dynamic form of Somali poetry in this century. This edition uses modern Somali script.

Download or read book Growing Up Muslim written by Andrew Garrod and published by Cornell University Press. This book was released on 2014-04-15 with total page 232 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "While 9/11 and its aftermath created a traumatic turning point for most of the writers in this book, it is telling that none of their essays begin with that moment. These young people were living, probing, and shifting their Muslim identities long before 9/11.... I’ve heard it said that the second generation never asks the first about its story, but nearly all the essays in this book include long, intimate portrayals of Muslim family life, often going back generations. These young Muslims are constantly negotiating the differences between families for whom faith and culture were matters of honor and North America’s youth culture, with its emphasis on questioning, exploring, and inventing one’s own destiny."—from the Introduction by Eboo Patel In Growing Up Muslim, Andrew Garrod and Robert Kilkenny present fourteen personal essays by college students of the Muslim faith who are themselves immigrants or are the children of immigrants to the United States. In their essays, the students grapple with matters of ethnicity, religious prejudice and misunderstanding, and what is termed Islamophobia. The fact of 9/11 and subsequent surveillance and suspicion of Islamic Americans (particularly those hailing from the Middle East and the Asian Subcontinent) have had a profound effect on these students, their families, and their communities of origin.

Download or read book Conflict in the Horn of Africa written by Vincent Bakpetu Thompson and published by University Press of America. This book was released on 2015-02-03 with total page 421 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Conflict in the Horn of Africa examines how the Kenya-Somalia border problem has deep roots in pre-colonial and colonial times mirroring the phenomenon of shifting territorial and human frontiers and treaties which Britain, France, Italy, and Ethiopia made before and after World Wars I and II. This book documents the Kenya-Somalia border problem from the nineteenth century, when decisions ignored African concerns, to independence, when Africans acted as the principal players. Vincent Bakpetu Thompson analyses how the crises regarding Kenya and Somalia’s domestic situations impacted their international relations in and beyond the region. This book furthers the discussion by looking at the current problems in the region that are obscured by instability, infiltrations, the repetitive influx of refugees crossing and re-crossing the border, and increasing terrorist attacks.

Download or read book A Decade Transformed Revival of Turkey and Somalia’s Multilayer Relations written by Mehmet Köse and published by afrika vakfı yayınları. This book was released on with total page 338 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Turkey’s humanitarian intervention operations to lessen the effect of the humanitarian crisis that hit Somalia hard in 2011, had a dramatic impact on the development of Turkey-Somalia relations. Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit, then the Prime Minister of Turkey, to Somali Capital Mogadishu with a large delegation, has transformed the relations from limited fields such as security operations and political engagements under the umbrella of multilateral institutions to intertwined multifaceted and multi-layered relations embracing state-building, development, and improvement of economic infrastructure. Bilateral relations have made significant positive contributions to the reconstruction process of Somalia over the past decade. The relations with Somalia have been an important milestone in Turkey’s Africa opening policies. This book is a collection of chapters assessing the growing relationship between Turkey and Somalia in diverse sectors and fields such as history, politics, security, peacebuilding, economy, development, society, and culture. The multi-level and multi-sector relationship between Somalia and Turkey has matured for the last decade. Experts have examined the different aspects of the relationship. This is a timely contribution to the literature. Moreover, this is a must-read book for policymakers and researchers interested in Somalia-Turkey relations. -Afyare Abdi Elmi, Professor of International Politics
