Islam and the Question of Minorities is an anthology exploring some of the unique aspects of minority issues in the Muslim world. It deals with examples of Muslim minority communities in Europe and Africa, as well as an example of the interaction between a Muslim ethnic minority and a minority Muslim revivalist group within a secular Muslim country, Turkey. Pointing out that more and more Muslims are living as religious minorities and that the issues they face are similar to those faced by Muslim countries living within the family of nations, it stresses the growing importance and complexity of minority issues in Islamic studies.
