Nielsen describes the history of early European Muslims and outlines the causes and courses of twentieth-century Muslim immigration. Explaining how Muslim communities have developed in individual countries, the book examines their origins, their present-day ethnic composition, organizational patterns, and the political, legal and cultural contexts in which they exist. The book also provides a comparative consideration of issues common to Muslims in all Western European countries, namely the role of the family, and questions of worship, education, and religious thought.
In the third edition, all country-related chapters have been substantially updated. A new chapter has also been added on southern Europe, where the maturity of a new generation has seen moves toward political integration.

Jørgen Nielsen is professor of Islamic studies and director of the Graduate Institute for Theology and Religion at the University of Birmingham, UK.Review:
An excellent, encapsulated factual survey and analysis... One hopes that policy-makers and the ecumenical establishment 'have a good read' of this book and that Nielsen and his colleagues continue in their tradition of honest appraisal and telling comment as sadly, in the present climate, even moderate Muslim opinion is now branded as extremist.(Muslim World Book Review)
A strongly recommended text which should inspire Muslim institutions to devote more resources to develop Muslim research and development in this neglected field.(Islamia)
A useful book for those who wish to obtain a concise survey of Muslims as a religious minority.(Association for Study of African, Caribbean and Asian Cultur)
