The exchange between Muslims and Europeans has a long and complicated history dating back to time before Europe was born. In other words, to the earliest years of Islam.
Today, more Muslims reside in Europe than in other countries in the Muslim world, and these populations are challenging what it means to be European in a secular, twenty-first-century society. At the same time, being in Europe has caused many Muslims to rethink the essential terms of their religion. In this work, H.A. Hellyer weighs the prospects of a European future in which unified societies accept pluralism and the Muslim community becomes a true part of Europe.
