Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a review of the book Islam and Muslims in Germany. The book is an impressive volume that offers fresh empirical insights into the landscape of Muslim minorities in Germany. The case studies stem from a wide range of disciplines including anthropology, sociology, geography, history, law, economics, Christian theology and Islamic studies. Although the words 'Muslim' and 'Islam' in the title invoke the narrow lens of Islam as a religion and Muslims as predominantly religious beings that dominates European public perceptions, the twenty-two contributions open a window on a much more diversified landscape. They address a group of people who share a Muslim background and a minority status—no more, no less—and who currently struggle to find their footing and to position themselves in German society, in their national, religious or artistic communities, and as individuals.
