Offers insights into the hopes and aspirations of British Muslims from remarkably diverse ethnicities. In Britain's highly politicised social climate in the aftermath of the 7/7 London bombings, this book provides an in-depth understanding of British Muslim identity. Nahid Kabir has carriedout over 200 in-depth, semi-structured interviews with young Muslims in five British cities: London, Leicester, Bradford, Leeds and Cardiff. By emphasising the importance of biculturalism, Kabir conveys a realistic and hopeful vision for their successful integration into British society.
Nahid Afrose Kabir is Senior Research Fellow at the International Centre for Muslim and non-Muslim Understanding at the University of South Australia.

Editorial Reviews

A useful overview of issues relating to Muslims in Britain, with a particular focus on the political and media context of the last decade or more... It is highly readable, with a clear structure and concise overview of significant socio-political issues... A second strength can be found in the extensive qualitative material deployed to support more general discussions concerning familiar and high-profile political issues. The multiple voices of young Muslim participants in this study regularly shine through, highlighting the ways in which individuals form and express nuanced opinions, often on matters that are frequently simplified by mainstream discourse.
