Today, Muslims are the second-largest religious group in much of Europe and Northern America. The chapters in this collection look both at the impact of the growing Muslim population on Western societies, and how Muslims are adapting to life in the West. Part 1 looks at the Muslim diaspora in Europe, comprising chapters on Britain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, and the Netherlands. Part 2 turns to the Western Hemisphere and Muslims in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Throughout, the chapters contend with such questions as: Can Muslims retain their faith and identity and at the same time accept and function within the secular and pluralistic traditions of Europe and America? What are the limits of Western pluralism? Will Muslims come to be fully accepted as fellow citizens with equal rights? A guide to the changing landscape of Islam, this volume is an introduction to the experiences of Muslims in the west, and the diverse responses of their adopted countries.
