Crime and Muslim Britain

Author: Marta Bolognani
Publisher: I.B.Tauris
ISBN: 9780857711717
Release Date: 2009-08-30
Genre: Political Science

The Britain of the early twenty-first century has become consumed by heightened concerns about violent crime as well as terrorism. Muslim men, and Muslim communities more widely, seem particularly susceptible to negative stereotyping, at the same time that many media accounts focus on alleged ‘dysfunctionalities’ of certain groups. However, little is known about the complex relations between ethnicity and criminality; knowledge held by minority ethnic groups on these matters is still much overlooked, and academic criminological accounts tend to neglect minorities’ views and their cultural specificities. Here Marta Bolognani fills a major gap in criminology and diaspora studies through an exhaustive cross-generational and cross-gender investigation into crime among British Pakistanis. Avoiding ill-fitting generalisations and stereotypes, she analyses Bradford Pakistanis’ perceptions of crime and its production, construction, sanctioning and prevention. These perceptions are analyzed in their specific reality, rather than by imposing abstract, universal categories. She also examines local and national state policies that are geared to preventing crime as well as people’s responses to them. In so doing, she shows us how crime comes to be understood by participants as well as institutional actors, and offers a counterpoint to the ‘taboo’ of talking about crime and race in cultural terms. Through detailed ethnographic observation and interview data, Bolognani shows how Bradford Pakistanis’ perceptions of crime and control are a combination of the formal and informal, or British and ‘traditional’ Pakistani, that are no longer separable in the diasporic context. Bradford Pakistanis engage with mainstream criminological and policy discourses in a way that reflects the position of their diaspora: ‘community’ for them includes their traditional structures but also all the intra-communal and inter-communal relations that are meaningful, as resources and as constraints. ‘Crime in Muslim Britain’ is essential for all those interested in criminology, ethnicity and the predicaments of Muslim communities today.

Overloaded? I’ll bet you are. We all lead busy lives. You fall into bed exhausted at the end of the day, feeling that you’ve got a lot done. Perhaps you are getting lots done. But is it stuff that really matters? Or is it just stuff? It’s time to wise up. You will never clear that list. Get used to the idea that some things will never get done. Not delayed. Not rescheduled. Not re-prioritized. But simply dropped. And from now on, instead of trying to clear that endless to-do list, you’re going to do a much smarter thing. You’re going to just do the important stuff. And the brilliant thing is, you already have the power to do this. That power is to do less. Soon enough, you’ll have the space to enjoy the moment, be creative, find new or better ways of doing things, get ideas, and spot opportunities you would have missed when you were running around. In short – you’ll be happier. Much happier. As soon as you stop doing, the power of doing less will begin to flow.
