Kortmann, Matthias; Rosenow-Williams, Kerstin (eds) (2013), Islamic Organizations in Europe and the USA: A Multidisciplinary Perspective. (Palgrave Studies in European Political Sociology, vol. 3), Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan. http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?pid=657020

This volume explores the extraordinary variety of Islamic organizations in Europe and the United States. It focuses on the question of how local, national and transnational environments and changing public discourses on Muslims and Islam affect Islamic organizations and their members. The contributions all employ a bottom-up research approach and uncover diverse reactions of Islamic organizations in their forms of organization, strategies and practices. Compiling twelve studies from researchers of a variety of disciplines, this volume provides theoretical and empirical findings on Islamic organizations from the Baltic States, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and the US.
