Journey into Europe: Islam, Immigration, and Identity is the last installment of a four-volume series written by Prof. Akbar Ahmed. The text is composed of three parts and nine chapters. It starts by outlining the historical presence of Islam in Europe and continues elaborating theoretical discussions about modernity and tribalism in respect to the (re)construction of European identity and the formation of nations from ancient times to the present. The second part is about various types of Muslims, i.e. natives, immigrants, and converts, and their struggle to locate their Islamic identity within the broader European one. The final part highlights a number of lessons derived from the whole research and proposes a more pluralist European identity respecting ethnic, religious, and cultural diversity. It concludes with ten steps as “solutions to the crisis facing Muslims in Europe” (pp. 507-516).
