Book in hand: Contested conversions to Islam / Tijana Krstic. 2011

This has been classed by an RDA participant and LC in BP170.5.K77

As I look at the class BP170.5, and its reference to BV, it appears that
this a biographical class.  The book is not a biography of the author's
conversion to Islam, but about conversions to Islam during the Ottoman

It appears that this class has been mis-used, and that there should be a
class for the subject of conversions to Islam, and not just a biographical
