Editorial Reviews

Harvard University

“This book offers a fresh, innovative perspective by combining analysis of colonial state-Islam relations with contemporary situations of Islam in Europe. Such a combination highlights the relevance of history and political culture to better understand the institutional status of Islam today. I recommend this to scholars of political science and religious studies interested in the topic of Islam in the West.”

— Jocelyne Cesari, Director of the Islam in the West Program
