"A compelling study examining the social dilemmas concerning Muslims living in the west following the events of September 11, this work is dedicated to handling the delicate situation brought about by the presence of 15 to 20 million Muslims in western countries. Included are discussions of the practice of arranged marriage and its effects on immigration law, the representation of Muslim women in western populations, and the situation concerning Iraqi relations. With chapters covering minority populations, food prohibitions, and family law, the cultural and religious practices of Muslims are seen in the context of life in the west."
