"Between the 2001 and 2011, the Muslim population of Scotland increased by nearly eighty percent. The youthfulness of Scotland's Muslim community means this population is likely to continue to grow in size. Yet, Scotland's Muslim community does not feature much at all in research about 'Muslims in Britain': at best, Scotland is mentioned in passing, and at worst, generalisations are made about 'British Muslims' based on the assumption that Muslims in Scotland have the same experiences to Muslims in England. However, in the last ten years or so, research has started to give specific attention to the everyday lives, identities and experiences of Scotland's Muslims. This collection brings together a lot of this research and, with contributions from leading and emerging scholars in the field, explores the lives, political engagements and social practices of Scotland's Muslim communities"-- Provided by Publisher
