"Muslims in Western Europe" is a country-by-country survey of the social, political and legal position of all the European Muslim communities. Jorgen Nielsen describes how the "Rushdie affair" in Britain and the "affair of the headscarves" in France have contradicted 1970s expectations of complete integration. In clear terms he shows the reader how Muslim communities have developed differently in each country, and compares the origins, ethnic composition, distribution and organizational patterns in each, as well as the political, legal and cultural context in which they have found their way. It covers all the European countries and there are thematic chapters on family, law and culture, and organizaton.
