Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is an excellent collection of essays on youth in a number of Muslim majority (and minority) societies in the context of globalization and modernity. A particular strength of this volume is its ability to highlight the multiple and contested roles of religion and personal faith in the fashioning of contemporary youthful Muslim identities. Such insights often challenge secular Western master narratives of modernity and suggest credible reconceptualizations of what it means to be young and modern in a broad swath of the world today."

-- Asma Afsaruddin, Professor of Islamic Studies, Indiana University


"A rich volume...highly recommended."--CHOICE


"This collection of research essays interrogates the culture and politics of Muslim youth in the global South and North to understnad their trajectories, conditions and choice."--Islamic Horizons


"...very useful book...."-Contemporary Sociology


'Among the impressive features of Being Young and Muslim is the consistently high quality of the chapters as well as how well they cohere together, especially in light of the excellent introduction offered by the editors. For those interested in the politics of Muslim youth, this is an essential reference book."--British Journal of Sociology
