Muslims and Western Europe in the Modern Era is a groundbreaking contribution to the historical study of Islam and Muslim minorities in Western Europe. It frames recent and ongoing events and political, academic and popular deliberations within their often-neglected historical contexts, demonstrating the manner in which history can inform and further our understanding of contemporary debates. Written by an international group of experts, the 12 country case studies included in the volume all draw upon different themes, experiences and chronological scopes, as well as political, economic, social, cultural and religious factors. By providing an overview of the historiography as well as engaging with recent scholarship and debate, the introduction offers a context for the chapters that follow. The book's varied methodologies also inject an interdisciplinarity into the overarching historical framework that provides an in-depth and comprehensive account of Islam and Muslim life in individual countries as well as on a Western European scale. Offering essential historical insight into one of the most pressing and contentious debates of our time, this book is vital reading for any student examining the history of Islam, multiculturalism and religion in modern Europe.
