Many history museums collect contemporary objects, stories, images and sounds. But reasoned collecting strategies and policies are often lacking. The sheer quantity of available material culture and the complexity of contemporary life leave many confused about how best to document and engage with the present. Collecting the Contemporary addresses one of the most fundamental issues facing today's history museums: why and how to engage with contemporary collecting? In a format which is approachable, attractive - and above all actionable, this handbook is packed with stimulating thinking and international case studies from some of the leading practitioners and thinkers in the field. This overview of contemporary collecting in a social historical context is well overdue. Original source material, ideas, developments and research have never before been brought together in a single volume.
Most Christians have a limited understanding of the Muslim faith and are ill-prepared for discussions about Islam with their friends and neighbors, not to mention discussions with other Muslims. This book is an introduction to the beliefs and principles of the Islamic faith so that we can be better prepared for dialogue with this rapidly growing religion and those who are welcoming this potentially dangerous faith into American culture.
