This major works collection surveys the nature of Muslim diasporas in the west from a sociological perspective, exploring the issues of migration, integration, identity, politics, Islamophobia, and radicalization.

This four-volume collected works is the state of the art on the research and scholarship on Muslim diasporas in the West carried out over the last four decades. From canonical works to the latest trends in study, these contributions have added to the understanding of ethnicity, equality and diversity in relation to Muslims in the west. These article explore the philosophies of multiculturalism, integration, and interculturalism. They also analyse issues of identity politics, Islamophobia, and radicalization. The research carried out on Muslims in the west has had a significant impact on the study of Muslim minorities in other parts of the world. This major works collection suitably captures the significance of past research and its importance for further scholarship in relation to Muslims and Islam across Europe, North America, and Australia.
