ABSTRACT
This article analyzes the book "Islam and Modernity: Muslims in Europe and the United States," by Iftikhar H. Malik. Much has been written about Islam and the West — as if they operate in two separate spheres. This book looks at the Muslim diasporas in the West from the Moors, as the Spaniards call Muslims, who populated Spain for nearly 700 years, to the present day. This book generates a fresh perspective on the problematic relationships between Islam, the West and so-called modernity — in the light of increasingly vocal Muslim diasporas in Europe and the U.S.
