"Using the Muslim experience in the United States as a lens, the author examines what he identifies as a pervasive alienation suffered by Muslims over their place in history, source of identity, and moral foundations. The author imagines himself sitting in a conference of Islamic books - the Conference convening to examine the contemporary Muslim condition. Various influential intellectual trends are represented in this Conference, but the author is not a passive observer, he is an active participant who reacts to the Conference with introspection and critical moral insight. The author positions himself on a bridge between the intellectual heritage of Islam and the oppressive Muslim present, arguing that the salvation of one is intricately linked to the other." Octavo. Original paper wrappers. Near fine.

A dozen snapshots in this collection dating from the 1930s show old neighborhoods and locations where the children went to school. Some of the photographs have handwritten captions on the verso, identifying Velma Ruth Parsons (1902-82), as well as her younger sisters, Marcella and Roselle, and a younger brother, Lawren. They were all born in Santa Fe and attended the First Ward School, shown in a few snapshots. There are also a few photographs of the Presbyterian Mission School, where Velma's father Charles and his siblings went to school, according to a caption.
