About this book
This book analyzes the development of Islam and Muslim communities in the West, including influences from abroad, relations with the state and society, and internal community dynamics. The project examines the emergence of Islam in the West in relation to the place of Muslim communities as part of the social fabric of Western societies. It provides an overview of the major issues and debates that have arisen over the last three to four decades surrounding the presence of new Muslim communities residing in Western liberal democracies. As such, the volume is an ideal text for courses focusing on Islam and Muslim communities in the West.

“The book is an overview of important themes and contentions concerning Islam and Muslim communities in the West, both from an empirical perspective and as analyzed within the rapidly developing academic literature. … The book is written for non-specialists, and its accessible, concise synthesis of scholarly debates makes it an excellent text for use in university courses on Islam in the West.” (Jeff VanDenBerg, Reading Religion, readingreligion.org, April 15, 2019)
