British Muslims: Loyalty and Belonging


When national idenity is constructed around specific ideas and notions of race and religion, multicultural diversity and religious pluralism are negated via exclusivity. British Muslims are often viewed in terms of 'otherness' and their responses to their religious and national identities particularly when there is a contention resulting in question of loyalty and belonging. This book addresses some of the major issues, both historical and contemporary, offered by leading scholars on British Muslims' loyalty and belonging.
