Aislinn O’Donnell reviews Muslims, Schooling and Security: Trojan Horse, Prevent and Racial Politics by Shamim Miah. She explores the book’s analysis of the “Trojan Horse controversy” in Birmingham, UK, and demonstrates how Muslims have been “othered” and securitized in schools. O’Donnell appreciates the deep discursive analysis of the book, which surfaces the ways state-sponsored counter-terrorism interacts with education governance and what the consequences are for teachers and students.
