Product description


'Sara Khan is a fearless and principled voice in the struggle for the soul of Islam. Everyone who cares about combatting prejudice should read her, befriend her and fight alongside her.' --Nick Cohen

'An important book from a tireless campaigner' --Mishal Husain

'This is an important book full of compelling, disturbing and inspirational material, required reading to understand what is happening in our midst and what we can do about it.' Justin Marozzi, Sunday Times

'[The Battle for British Islam] deserves a wide readership Francis Wheen, Mail on Sunday

'Khan's book is an eloquent and necessary exposition of the state we're currently in, and a plea for understanding and unity in the fight against extremism whether it's the far-right or Islamism which is against our interests, and should be alien to socialism done properly. It is essential reading for feminists and lefties. Morning Star

'Thoughtful and detailed ... the perfect introduction to those who engage with British Islam, extremist or not, and who want a roadmap. A must read ... This is a courageous book which gives the reader the tools to identify competing voices for the British Muslim identity.' Crest

'A wake-up call'New Humanist

'An impressive book … [This] book deftly examines the roots and growth of Muslim extremism in the UK and would have been invaluable for that alone. But it stands for something more. It is a powerful cri de coeur. British society, Khan urges, must stand with reforming Muslims otherwise "extremists are the ones who will be left to define British Islam".' --Times Literary Supplement
