'This book is a timely examination of the geographies and diversities of Muslim identities. Critical contemporary issues surrounding Muslim identities are handled with sensitivity, sound theoretical grounding and rich empirical detail, including issues about diasporic and gender identities. It is a must-read for all who seek a nuanced understanding of Muslim identities in all their historic and geographic specificities.' Lily Kong, National University of Singapore 'Muslim identities are too often depicted as 'the rest' set against 'the west'. In a brave attempt to decouple racism from religion, this book explores the gendered cultural diversity of Muslim peoples. The message is that geography, locality and mobility matter as much as history and heritage for the shape of social life. Treading a fine line, the authors celebrate multiple acts of difference without comprising the integrity of Islam.' Susan J. Smith, Durham University, UK '...the book is a welcome contribution to the social study of the reconfiguration of Muslim identities in the diaspora.' DOMES
