Description:
Focusing on the private and public use of space, this volume explores the religious life of the new Muslim communities in North America and Europe. These essays concentrate on cultural practices and expressions of everyday life rather than on the political issues that dominate today's headlines. The authors emphasize the cultural strength and creativity of communities that draw upon Islamic symbols and practices to define "Muslim space" against the background of a non-Muslim environment.
