Bibliographic information


"This is an extremely interesting and timely volume showcasing the wide variety of movement in the contemporary global environment. One of its strengths is the primarily focus upon movement within the Muslim world - a subject which is only recently starting to attract attention beyond scholars working on a specific case study. Managing Muslim Mobilities is certainly original in terms of the issues that it covers and the original research which mostly benefits from rich and detailed fieldwork." - Fiona McCallum, School of International Relations, University of St Andrews, UK
