Reviews

"Muslim Moroccan Migrants in Europe forces us to revisit our understanding of transnational culture in some fundamental ways, and demonstrates that 'diaspora' is less a historical condition than a set of practices through which migrants pursue a variety of alliances and associations. In the process, the text takes into account highly divergent ways of imagining identity beyond the boundaries of nation and language. The research itself is quite imaginative and is framed throughout by subtle questioning and great analysis. It clearly establishes Ennaji as a fine cultural critic, as alert to the tensions and anxieties of difference and distance as to the yearnings for affiliation and solidarity.' - Alamin Mazrui, Rutgers University, USA

"The Moroccan immigrant population in Europe is large and diverse, spanning many EU nations. This important ethnographic study, undertaken by one of Morocco's leading scholars, captures the hopes, dreams, and struggles of ordinary Moroccan migrants as they attempt to work and contribute to societies in which they are generally distrusted as Muslims. This is essential reading for migration studies scholars, and for anyone attempting to understand the Muslim experience in contemporary Europe." - Marcia C. Inhorn, Yale University, USA
