What People are Saying About This

Amir Hussain

I cannot think of a religious community more in need of study than Canadian Muslims, who have, until now, received scant scholarly attention. This book examines the hybridity of Canadian Islam, and discusses the various ways in which Muslims have, and have not, adapted to their contexts. Timely and cutting-edge, it will be of great interest to students and scholars of religion, sociology, and anthropology, as well as cultural, legal, and gender studies.
