Muslims in Europe: a critique of occidentalist views
Undertakes a critical review of the book, Muslims in Europe , to bring out the localized analysis of Islam and Muslims in contemporary Europe which is given in much of the occidentalist literature. Shows that such a localized view does not represent the true character of the global Islamic revivalism in the post-Cold War period, in which the phenomenon of Muslims in Europe is to be examined. Examines the alternative view of this global approach to the study of Muslims in Europe. In this context the alternative assumes the presentation of an Islamic sub-nation model and its grass-roots world view. Shows that the model is a globally interactive system, based on a knowledge-centred universality. In the light of this, examines Islamic future in Europe and its relationship with dominant European governments.
