Scotland's Muslims

Society, Politics and Identity

Edited by Peter Hopkins

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Between the 2001 and 2011, the Muslim population of Scotland increased by nearly eighty percent. The youthfulness of Scotland's Muslim community means this population is likely to continue to grow in size. This book includes some of the leading and emerging scholars who have undertaken research with Muslims in Scotland and is one of the first collections to explore the everyday lives, political engagements and social practices of Scotland's Muslims. Themes and issues engaged with include: education, health and well-being; sexuality, gender and age; integration, multiculturalism and citizenship; and heritage, media and representation.
