'This book is a wake-up call for Muslim academics to get involved and start to write about Muslim identity from a Muslim viewpoint, rather than letting others interpret what Muslims do and think, and why. From that point of view, this book will be useful as a sounding board against which first-hand perspectives can be balanced.' - Ibrahim Hewitt, Muslim World Book Review
