Noted scholars Haddad and Smith bring together outstanding essays on the distinct experiences of minority Muslim communities from Detroit, Michigan to Perth, Australia and the wide range of issues facing them. In their introduction, the authors trace the broad contours of the Muslim experience in Europe, America and other areas of European settlement and shed light on the common questions minority Muslims face of assimilation, discrimination, evangelism, and politics. This text provides a welcome introduction to these increasingly visible citizens of Western nations.

Review quote

This is precisely the kind of material which should be available to a Western audience to put the situation and interests of the Muslim minorities into perspective, at a time when public agendas-media and political-seem to be set by reactions to the events of 11 September. -- Jorgan S. Nielson, CSIC, University of Birmingham Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations, Vol 14.1, 2003 This edited collection is a valuable addition to the literature... This book brings together a fascinating collection of diverse and often rich accounts of Muslim life in different contexts. -- Sophie Gilliat-Ray, Cardiff University, Wales American Journal of Islamic Social Studies
