Young British Muslims provides the reader with detailed insights into the everyday lived experiences of young British Muslims aged between 15-30 years. This study that consists of seven chapters is based on extensive qualitative field research comprising in-depth semi-structured interviews conducted with 216 male and female Muslims from diverse ethnic backgrounds and from a range of educational institutions in Britain such as schools, colleges, youth centres, and mosque communities. The interviews were conducted in Bradford, Cardiff, Leeds, Leicester and London in 2008. The study’s strength lies in its ethnographic sections that are very well sourced and that illustrate the experiences of Muslims from a wide range of religious and ethnic communities. It examines the identities of young British Muslims in terms of their migration, gender, socio-economic, cultural, and educational as well as the wider societal contexts. It further analyses the impact particular political and social events such as Jack Straw’s niqab debate and its media coverage have had on the identities of British Muslims as recalled and experienced by the interviewees themselves. The first two chapters of the book give a general introduction to the identity debate in Britain and a brief overview of the history of Muslims
