Abstract [en]

This essay is about how islam is illustrated in textbooks of History in Sweden during 1980-s and first decade in 2000.  This study does not aim to give all answers about those tendencies, but it will lift up and discuss this issues.

The essay has two questions to answers. They are:

1-      How does textbooks from 1980-s and 2000-s illustrate Islam?

2-      Do we see any tendencies of Orientalism in textbooks?

The most focus in this study will be in first question, because this question is more open and need more empirical material to answer. The second question is more specific and has to do with first questions results.


The first part of off essays investigation has to do with description of what textbooks writtes about Islam. After this I will compare and analyze what differences they are between textbooks from 1980-s and first decade of 2000-s. The last chapter of essay will summarize conclusions that came from results of investigation.
