Ahmet Yükleyen

Cloth $39.95s    |    978-0-8156-3262-7    |    2011

"Despite challenges of the post 9/11 context, Yukleyen’s rich ethnography shows that religion is a resource for integration not only by bonding among Muslims but also bridging activism with the larger society in Western Europe"—Jocelyne Cesari, Director of the Islam in the West Program, Harvard University and John Hopkins University

"Ahmet Yukleyen’s Localizing Islam in Europe cuts through the shrill debates to provide a rich and authoritative portrait of the lived reality of Muslims adapting to life in Europe. His insights will be invaluable for student, scholars, and policymakers alike."—Peter Mandaville, George Mason University, author of Global Political Islam

"Ahmet Yükleyen provides a clear and convincing account of the different orientations of the major Turkish religious institutions in Germany and the Netherlands. All those interested in Islam in Europe today should read this book."—John R. Bowen, author of Can Islam Be French? Pluralism and Pragmatism in a Secularist State

"A compelling and important contribution to our understanding of Islam in Europe."—Esra Özyürek, University of California, San Diego
