This book is the first comprehensive study of politics, participation and civic engagement in Pakistani Muslim communities in the UK. Written from an insider perspective, British Muslim Politics, offers a unique take on a demographic group that has been the subject of much public and policy concern in recent times. Arguing for a critical reappraisal of our views of 'Muslim' politics, the book takes a panoramic view of a decade that has seen many significant events shape the political practices of Pakistani Muslims in the UK (from the 2001 summer riots, to 9/11, to 7/7). For over a decade the author has been embedded as a researcher in the Pakistani community and has thus had access to people, places, narratives and stories that allow her to provide a comprehensive account of political processes affecting this community. British Muslim Politics is a refreshing look at how religion, ethnicity, people, and place shape contemporary politics.
