'A long overdue account of a dimension of Islam in Europe which has generally been ignored in western discussions. Providing comprehensive coverage of the subject in a way that is accessible to a university audience, this has the potential to become the foundational text in the subject.' Jørgen S. Nielsen, University of Copenhagen Introduces the centuries-old history of Muslim communities in Eastern Europe The history and contemporary situation of Muslim communities in Eastern Europe are explored here from three angles. First, survival, telling of the resilience of these Muslim communities in the face of often restrictive state policies and hostile social environments, especially during the Communist period. Next, their subsequent revival in the aftermath of the Cold War. And last, transformation, looking at the profound changes currently taking place in the demographic composition of the communities and in the forms of Islam practised by them. The reader is shown a picture of the general trends common to the Muslim communities of Eastern Europe, and the special characteristics of clusters of states, such as the Baltics, the Balkans, the ViSegrad states and the European states of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Key Features . Places Muslim communities of Eastern Europe within their historical and pan-European context, establishing them as belonging in and to Europe .
