This is precisely the kind of material which should be available to a Western audience to put the situation and interests of the Muslim minorities into perspective, at a time when public agendas―media and political―seem to be set by reactions to the events of 11 September. (Jorgan S. Nielson, CSIC, University of Birmingham Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations, Vol 14.1, 2003)
This edited collection is a valuable addition to the literature. . . . This book brings together a fascinating collection of diverse and often rich accounts of Muslim life in different contexts. (Sophie Gilliat-Ray, Cardiff University, Wales American Journal of Islamic Social Studies)
