Although they are typically portrayed by the media as dangerous extremists in distant lands, Muslims in fact form a permanent, peaceful and growing population in nearly every Western country. While Westerners are now more commonly seeing mosques in their neighborhoods or scarved Muslim women in their streets, misperceptions and stereotypes remain. With expanding numbers and desires to protect their rights and identities, Muslims are coming into more and more into the public view. In Muslim Minorites in the West noted scholars Haddad and Smith bring together outstanding essays on the distinct experiences of minority Muslim communities from Detroit, Michigan to Perth, Australia and the wide range of issues facing them. Haddad and Smith in their introduction trace the broad contours of the Muslim experience in Europe, America and other areas of European settlement and shed light on the common questions minority Muslims face of assimilation, discrimination, evangelism, and politics. Muslim Minorities in the West provides a welcome introduction to these increasingly visible citizens of Western nations.

Smith is Professor of Islamic Studies and Co-Director of the Macdonald Center for Christian-Muslim Relations at Hartford Seminary.

She is also co-editor of The Muslim World.

Review:

This is precisely the kind of material which should be available to a Western audience to put the situation and interests of the Muslim minorities into perspective, at a time when public agendas―media and political―seem to be set by reactions to the events of 11 September. (Jorgan S. Nielson, CSIC, University of Birmingham Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations, Vol 14.1, 2003)

This edited collection is a valuable addition to the literature. . . . This book brings together a fascinating collection of diverse and often rich accounts of Muslim life in different contexts. (Sophie Gilliat-Ray, Cardiff University, Wales American Journal of Islamic Social Studies)
