This concise book provides readers with a comprehensive overviewand critical assessment of the key issues and varied strands ofresearch relating to immigration and religion that have beenproduced during the past two decades.

Religion, once a neglected topic in migration studies, is todayseen as a crucially important aspect of the immigrant experience.For some - particularly those focusing on religion in North America- religion has been portrayed as a vital resource for manyimmigrants engaged in the essential identity work required inadjusting to the receiving society. For others - particularly thosewho have focused on Muslim immigrants in Western Europe - religiontends to be depicted as a source of conflict rather than one ofcomfort and consolation.

In a judicious, engaging, and highly readable account, this booksorts through these contrasting viewpoints, pointing to an approachthat will assist upper-level students and scholars alike in puttingthese competing analyses into perspective.
