An interdisciplinary collection of the best international scholarship on Muslim youth.

"Muslim youth, like Muslims in general and Islam itself, resist narrow stereotypes and incendiary shibboleths. In Political Muslims both Islamism and Islamic radicalization are addressed, but so are music, sports and education. Indeed, no topic, no problem and no prejudice is omitted from this comprehensive, insightful and timely volume. Highly recommended."—Bruce B. Lawrence, Professor Emeritus of Islamic Studies, Duke University

"Political Muslims represents a significant work insofar as it provides an important and valuable alternative portrait of socially and politically engaged Muslim youth mobilizing their religious identity and particular interpretations of religion in ways that allow them to pursue political agendas."—Peter Mandaville, professor of international affairs, Schar School of Policy and Government, George Mason University
