This book is a study of how the events of September 11 and the subsequent war on terror have impacted on the lives of British South Asian Muslims. Issues in relation to religious and ethnic identities, citizenship, Islamophobia, gender and education, radicalism, and media and political representation are explored. Chapters are written by experts in the fields of sociology, social geography, anthropology, theology, and public policy, researching and writing about the positions of British South Asian Muslims, using a range of analytical perspectives and methodological approaches. The book introduces new and previously unpublished social science research, as well as penetrating polemical essays on the current predicaments, challenges, and opportunities facing British South Asian Muslims today.
