    DescriptionThe London and Madrid bombings, the French riots, the uproar over the Danish Muhammad cartoons, foiled plots at Heathrow Airport, in Frankfurt Germany and Copenhagen-these events all underscore the volatile relationship between Muslims and their European hosts. Who are these angry Muslims? How did so many come to Europe? Covering eight countries and thirty cities, but focusing on Britain and France, Europe's Angry Muslims provides an authoritative and engaging account of how Islam came to 20th century Europe and altered the continent's cultural, political, and security landscape. This balanced book combines first hand reporting, based on interviews of former radicals, scrutiny of court records, historical background, and cutting-edge analysis to capture the complex phenomenon of European Islam. Leiken cites actual speeches and testimony from radical imams such as Abu Hamza, now under arrest. The author takes us to the streets of East London where veiled women shop in medieval market stalls, where arranged marriages are standard, and jihad videos available under the counter. We visit the Paris housing projects after the French riots of autumn 2005, with a local hero, a sincere Muslim and ex-rapper. Perhaps most important, the book describes how good intentions and bottom lines, cheap labor and cheap grace paved the road to terror and social dislocation. It unravels the connections, real and imagined, between immigration and terrorism. In charting the path of radical Islam into Europe, the book examines how home grown terrorists linked up with radical mentors, deepening and reconfiguring the "clash of civilizations" debate. Europe's Angry Muslims is the first book to provide an in-depth look at the emerging Islamic threat in Europe in an objective and comprehensive way, combining sharp-eyed reportage with a provocative, engaging narrative.

    Review quote
    Leiken brings and interestingly broad perspective to the subject and takes time to get to grips with some of the detailed and nuanced, often conflicting, aspects of the topic. ... the book is a very useful addition to the genre. It is written in a very accessible style and brings much-needed nuance and a well-grounded set of perspectives that help the reader to form a more rounded picture of the complex dynamics involved. Dilwar Hussain, The Muslim World Book Review Extensively sourced, robustly argued...timely and provocative. Publisher's Weekly He writes with eloquence, bringing to life the grim realities of the French banlieues and of the back-to-back houses of immigrant families in Leeds, where his requests for information met an impenetrable wall of silence. The Economist A critical examination of the historical factors and conditions that produced the conflictual relations between the Muslim minority communities and their European hosts. Leiken's narrative ... produces important insights. Washington Times What Robert Leiken does most adeptly is to synthesise and consolidate much of the existing work from the last decade into a well-written study Literary Review An in-depth study, based on extensive field research and interviews, of the dynamics that have created the ground for Europe to become a hotbed of Islamist extremism by its second generation of Muslim immigrants.
