The Integration/Participation Strategies and Sense of Home of First- and Second-Generation Women of Moroccan and Turkish Descent

Women of Moroccan and Turkish descent in the Netherlands are often portrayed as oppressed, non-integrated victims. It is deemed that their Islamic faith and their alleged lack of sense of home in the Netherlands are obstructing their integration. However, this research shows that many women try to integrate, some explicitly because of and not despite Islam. Their definitions, needs, and strategies of integration and their integration experiences vary though, depending on the combination of their generational status, educational level, ethnicity/nationality, and age. This variation is not reflected by policies and how society treats them, which hampers their integration. Furthermore, many women do feel at home in the Netherlands. Nonetheless, the more they integrate, the greater their exposure to assimilative pressures. This can diminish their sense of home, thereby thwarting their integration process.

The self-proclaimed “Hottest Band in the World,” KISS is one of the most popular groups in the history of rock, having sold more than 100 million albums during their more than 40–year reign. With more gold albums than any other American band, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014. KISS influenced a generation of musicians, from Garth Brooks and Mötley Crüe to Nirvana and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The original leather-clad, makeup-wearing line-up—Ace “Spaceman” Frehley, Gene “Demon” Simmons, Paul “Starchild” Stanley and Peter “Catman” Criss—and their classic hits “Beth” and “Rock and Roll All Nite” are forever etched in pop culture consciousness. This encyclopedia of all things KISS provides detailed information on their songs, albums, tours, television and movie appearances, merchandise, solo work and much more, including replacement members Eric Carr, Vinnie Vincent, Bruce Kulick, Mark St. John, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer.
Tony Bell...Kiss Army membership number Z2192 - is a hopeless case, who fell in love with rock music during his teenage years. He was desperate for a piece of what was happening, and he wanted it right there and then. So, he borrowed Wylie Coyote's rocket powered roller skates, picked up a guitar and lit the fuse. Nobody told him that the road to rock and roll stardom curved as the canyon approached, and it really was a long way down. His fall was cushioned by some great times, and some great friends. By the time he hit the bottom, he had managed to open a beer, and tease his hair perfectly. When the dust settled, he picked up his pen, opened another beer and wrote it all down.
