He examines five areas of particular importance: the effect of the growth of Muslim communities on the demographics of Western Europe generally, and France, Germany and the United Kingdom in particular; the consequences of the marginalization of Muslims on domestic and international Cited by: More importantly, the book proposes a new, constructive approach.

The author, who has been on the frontlines of Muslim affairs in Europe for the better part of thirty years, makes a forceful and nuanced argument for a return to a ‘traditional Islam’ which employs, ‘the cumulative wisdom of the Muslim centuries in all its amplitude’ in.

Islam is the second-largest religion in Europe after Christianity. Although the majority of Muslim communities in Europe formed recently, there are centuries-old Muslim societies in the Balkans.
