Book Description

1 April 2002 Transnational Perspectives on Space and Place
Five centuries after the expulsion of Muslims and Jews from Spain, Europe is once again becoming a land of Islam. At the beginning of a new millennium, and in an era marked as one of globalization, Europe continues to wrestle with the issue of national identity, especially in the context of its Muslim citizens. Muslim Europe or Euro-Islam brings together distinguished scholars from Europe, the United States, and the Middle East in a dynamic discussion about the Muslim populations living in Europe and about Europe's role in framing Islam today. The book raises several crucial questions: Does Islam offer a special case for citizenship? Is assimilation or multiculturalism the model to be followed in the case of Muslims in Europe? How powerful a force is Islam in determining identity? And why is Islam? after centuries of being a presence in Europe? not considered a European religion? Working at the knotty intersection of cultural identity, the politics of nations and nationalisms, and religious persuasions, this is an invaluable anthology of scholarship that reveals the multifaceted natures of both Europe and Islam.

Product Description


An excellent collection of articles that highlight the new and unexpected emergent relationships between 'Europe' and 'Islam' as concepts, discourses, practices, and politics. -- Seteney Shami, Program on the Middle East and North Africa, Social Science Research Council Historically, Europe formed its identity by its hostility to Islam, yet today millions of Europeans are also Muslims. This transformation challenges us to rethink what it means to be European. The essays collected here are an important contribution to this task. -- Timothy Mitchell, Kevorkian Center for Middle East Studies, New York University ... an important contribution to an emerging growing literature. American Journal of Islamic Social Studies ...a well-argued set of essays which reviews the place of Islam in Europe and America... Journal Of Multilingual & Multicultural Development This book succeeds in "crossing the border" that separates Western Europe and the Muslim world. It reminds us that these two parts of the world do not just face each other; they also share in an important way the social life and political processes of each other's type of society. -- Alain Touraine, Ecole des Hautes, Etudes de Sciences Sociales

2.0 out of 5 stars A confused and disorganized study 22 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Muslim Europe or Euro-Islam: Politics, Culture, and Citizenship in the Age of Globalization (Transnational Perspectives)
by Nezar Alsayyad (Editor), Manuel Castells (Editor) is a confused and disorganized study of a very important subject at this time. The work fails to systematically tackle the hard issues of social integration between Islamic society and western concepts of individual rights and democracy. There are many better works, chief among which is Dr. Sami Aldeeb Abu-Sahlieh's work MUSLIMS IN THE WEST (0-9719496-0-3 published by Shangri-La Publications), which is a monumental exploration of the social, legal, religious and political issues.
