"What is the fundamental nature of "British Islam"? What kind of message is being conveyed by British Muslims? This book helps answer such questions, providing an in-depth series of case-studies of the most influential voices in the contemporary Muslim community in Britain. Dr Haifaa Jawad's sensitive evaluation of Islam in Britain debunks the media stereotypes of British Islam, and reveals instead that what inspires the finest minds of the British Muslim community is a creative synthesis between what is most noble in British culture and what is most profound in Islamic faith."--Sanford Lakoff
