Book Description

Islam in Transition focuses on the ways in which Islamic religion still engenders powerful loyalties within what is now a predominantly secular society and how, in their continual adherence to their religion, many young British Pakistanis find a welcome sense of stability and permanence. By presenting material collected in field-work study and by using extensive quotations from interviews, the author argues that in a world where concepts of identity are always being challenged traditional sources of authority and allegiance still survive.

Reviews

'The rich human texture which characterises the book combines with a lack of technicality to provide an eminently readable and sympathetic account ... This is a admirable account of one of the most important cultural transformations in modern Britain, and deserves to be widley read' - Tim Winter, World Faiths Encounter
