Editorial Reviews

Review


"Mr. Leiken is a largely reliable guide to the varieties of Islamic belief and politics that are now reproduced in Europe...He writes with eloquence, bringing to life the grim realities of the French banlieues and of the back-to-back houses of immigrant families in Leeds, where his requests for information met an impenetrable wall of silence." -- The Economist


"Leiken provides a historical, ethnic and socioeconomic context that identifies important differences as opposed to empty generalities. Both well written and researched-a valuable contribution to an ongoing discussion." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)


"Timely and provocative, this is an important addition to the literature on Islamic terrorism." - Publisher's Weekly


"Leiken discusses Islamophobia and the extent to which Jihadist 'outsiders' manipulate those subjected to it for their own purposes, and emphasizes the need to distinguish between genuine Islamist political agitation and other forms of civil disobedience more rooted in socioeconomic tension."--Middle East Journal


"Leiken supports his anecdotal observations with the weight of academic and empirical studies, resulting in an immensely readable account that is also authoritative." -- Literary Review

Format: Hardcover
I'm astounded that mine is the first review here, although the book has been available for 6 months. If the goal of a non-fiction is to teach a great deal on a particular topic of interest, this may be the best book that I've read in years. And the subject is one that should be important to everyone: Muslims and why they are angry. The author dissects the subject by country, explaining how which Muslims came from where and settled in select parts of European countries. He explains why so many have been radicalized despite influences from Western cultures. He explains why England's Muslims are angrier than France's despite the fact that France is less accommodating. And so much more.

Why should Americans care about radicalized Muslims in the suburbs of London? Because they are the ones who are most likely to fly planes into our buildings, more so than Muslims from Syria, Iraq or Iran. And they are the ones that the Muslims communities here interact with.

Again, an extremely well researched, well written book on an important topic.

I have read a number of books lately concerning Islam, the history of Islamic expansion, and the danger posed to Western culture by Islamic aspirations for conquest. As I read Dr. Leiken's book: Europe's Angry Muslims, I started to notice something different. The book is impressively informative and would seem to be indisputably accurate, if for no other reason than Dr. Leiken's use of several hundreds of cited sources . Dr. Leiken draws parallels using the UK, France and Germany. He provides extensive explanations of each country's method of governing their former colonies. He goes on to provide each country's history with Islamic immigration. And he shows how each country's method of governing colonies affects their approaches to governing their homelands now. With all these connections in place, he then shows how each country regards, and is regarded by, its Islamic population.

What I found so refreshing was that nowhere does Dr. Leiken draw a conclusion, take a position, advance a judgement, or otherwise insert his own feelings into the matter. It is an authentic example of "no spin". Bravo! So that's what anthropology is supposed to be like.

Dr. Leiken's final sentence is a beautifully phrased and mildly administered rebuke to those who would write polemics and call them factual analyses. It is as follows:

"Nuance, specifity, and complexity rank as outsiders in a political culture that rewards partisanship, a media that reduces complex stories to "sound bites", an academy that merchandizes what it calls "theory", agenda-driven foundations and a think-tank world where policy often precedes, or even precludes, research. So take away, please, dear reader, a mind for patient and concrete analysis as a condition for policy and action.

Excellent historical review. Bogs down a bit with unfamiliar Arab names (to a certain extent unavoidable). The differences between certain European countries, and their historical attitudes toward assimilation, tolerance of nonassimilation, and the outcomes is minatory for the US.
