Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a review of the book Young, British and Muslim. First and foremost, Young, British and Muslim is an accessible and well written overview of some of the key issues facing British Muslims. It draws on a range of sources, not only academic and media sources, but also music and novels, supplemented with the author's own observations from attending mosque sermons and participating in debates. This is an account which does not flinch from detailing the challenges or criticising some Muslim approaches, but is ultimately informed by the author's hopeful enthusiasm for "the creativity of a new generation of young British Muslim professionals who, weary of the paralysis of many of their elders, have independently sought to plug gaping holes in provision".

Keywords: mosque sermons; young British Muslim professionals
