Publisher Comments:

European governments must struggle with assimilating Muslim newcomers into their countries, with so many more now living in Western Europe. Britain, France, and Germany have dealt with the related problems differently. This book explains why their policies differ and proposes ways of ensuring the successful incorporation of practicing Muslims into liberal democracies. Resolving their issues has become all the more urgent in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Synopsis:

Joel S. Fetzer and J. Christopher Soper analyze state accommodation of Muslims' religious practices in Britain, France, and Germany, first examining three major theories: resource mobilization, political-opportunity structure, and ideology. They then propose an additional explanation, arguing that each nation's approach to Muslims follows from its historically based church-state institutions.

Synopsis:

This book analyzes state accommodation of Muslims??? religious practices in Britain, France, and Germany.
