"An outstanding collection of insightful, intellectually honest, and socially engaged essays from a range of theoretical perspectives and regional experiences of Muslims with democratic citizenship, education, and mediation of the paradox of identity and difference." - Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na'im, Charles Howard Candler Professor of Law, Emory University

"This volume tackles crucial and cutting-edge topics that address the possibilities of developing genuine pluralist societies in Muslim and non-Muslims contexts.It contains a rich and solid set of case studies that reflect the challenges facing politicians as well as educational policy makers dealing with religious diversity. The authors brilliantly capture the complex conceptual and practical relationships that operate between loyalties and citizenship, as well as the manipulation of religious identities in a context of minority - majority relations." - Mohammed Abu-Nimer, Professor of International Peace and Conflict Resolution, School of International Service, American University

"The authors of this volume have succeeded in presenting a number of cohesive and convincing insights concerning the relationship between (multicultural) citizenship, (religious) identity and education on the one hand, and Islam and Muslims on the other. They attend especially to the dynamics of this relationship. At the same time the authors have succeeded in exploring the complexity of the much debated issue of democracy and Islam in western countries as well as in the Muslim world as such. Each chapter offers both a rich array of supporting theories as well as vivid empirical examples to illustrate and explain the discussed phenomena. I highly recommend it." - Wasif Shadid, Professor Emeritus of Intercultural Communication, Tilburg University and Leiden University
