Islamic Movements of Europe

Islamic Movements of Europe
'Addressing a topic that is little understood and subject to much speculation, Islamic Movements of Europe provides the most authoritative and comprehensive statement to date on this timely issue. The range and quality of the scholarship represented here will make it absolutely essential reading for researchers and policymakers alike.' Peter Mandaville, Director of the Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies and Associate Professor of Government and Politics, George Mason University, author of Global Political Islam 'Islamic Movements in Europe is a timely book. Muslim immigrants are now a significant part of Europe and yet their presence has become the object of political hostility in many European countries. Extreme rightwing movements and parties have gained considerable traction from the Islamophobia to which they themselves have contributed in a major way. One source of Islamophobia is the tendency to generalize about radical Islam in Europe. This book brings together a large body of articles by researchers that should help readers get a more nuanced and informed view of the subject. As such it deserves a wide audience.' Talal Asad, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology, City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center
