Reviews

"New Horizons of Muslim Diaspora in North America and Europe is a timely and wide-ranging volume that provides significant new insights into a topic that continues to increase in relevance and importance. The 16 contributions from scholars from a range of backgrounds explore an impressive array of aspects of Muslim diasporic communities, from religion to gender and from economics to cuisine, to help explain the contemporary experience. They record the remarkable diversity of the communities and their contexts while at the same time noting common challenges such as discrimination and debates over identity. As a whole, the book makes a crucial and informed contribution to a subject and a debate that more often than not elicit more heat than light." – Michael Willis, University of Oxford, UK

"Professor Moha Ennaji has edited an important, well-researched, and inspiring book. It should be read by scholars, journalists, and politicians alike. It says important things about our common future, in America and Europe." – Fouad Laroui, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands

"This volume, edited by Moha Ennaji, one of Morocco's most prolific and perceptive public intellectuals, provides a much-needed survey of a critical global issue – the complexities of the Muslim diasporic experience in North America and Europe. With contributions from recognized authorities on this question, the book displays both historical depth and a sensitivity to contemporary cultural and social matters, including those relating to gender; it will add significantly to our knowledge and understanding of both the immigrant experience and responses in the host countries." – Kevin Dwyer, Columbia University, USA
