Towards the end of Chapter 7 “Is there a space for European Muslims?” which is a concluding chapter of the volume, Spyros Sofos and Roza Tsagarousianou quote from E. P. Thompson’s The Making of the English Working Class (1963):

After an extensive literature review and after speaking to 735 interviewees from Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the UK in search for the answer to the question “what does it mean to be a European Muslim today?” Sofos and Tsagarousianou have settled with what can be seen as a classical sociological insight: European Muslims do exist but there is no overarching identity to define them; they are a happening.
