Muslim Minorities and
Social Cohesion
Cultural Fragmentation in the West. Edited by Abe W. Ata
Series: Routledge Studies in Religion

This important new book examines various attempts in the ‘West’ to manage cultural, linguistic, and religious diversity – focusing on Muslim minorities in predominantly non-Muslim societies. An international panel of contributors including Academy Fellow Professor James Jupp chart evolving national identities and social values, assessing the way that both contemporary ‘Western’ societies and their contemporary Muslim minorities view themselves and respond to the challenges of diversity. The contributors address multiple critical issues such as gender, the media, citizenship, and multiculturalism. Useful for scholars of religious studies, politics, culture, and migration.
