Explores how a new generation are redefining what it means to be a Muslim in Britain today. How is the new generation of British Muslims navigating relations across three distinct religious and social worlds? This book looks at how they are balancing expectations from traditional Islam imported from their ancestral homeland, expressions of Islam drawn from across the global Muslim community the Ummah and from Britain itself. Composed of activists, academics, religious scholars and professionals, this generation is drawing on new reformist thinking emerging from outside their parents' or grandparents' ethno-Muslim tradition and is using this to inform their activism. The social change that they are leading as well as the resistance which they encounter is the focus of this book.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A timely antidote to the, arguably, twisted characterisation and popular perception of British Muslims in circulation." -- Professor Humayn Ansari, Royal Holloway


"Considering the light the book throws on the burning issues in British society that directly impact Muslims such as those of Islamophobia, identity, immigration, extremism, terrorism, and integration, it is required reading for anyone - especially journalists, policy makers, and scholars wishing to understand modern British society." -- Akbar Ahmed, American University, Washington, DC, Daily Times of Pakistan


"Innovative, informative, and incisive, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in Muslim-Christian relations." -- Simon Valentine, Church Times
