Islam, Europe's Second Religion: The New Social, Cultural, and Political Landscape


Islam is slowly, but inexorably becoming part of Europe's social, cultural, and, to some degree, political landscape. With at least 15 million people in Western Europe who adhere to the Muslim faith or have close cultural or other affiliations with the Islamic world, Islam has emerged as Europe's second religion, after Christianity. This volume provides a country-by-country survey by recognized experts from each of the Western European nations.
