Islam and Tolerance in Wider Europe

Edited by Pamela Kilpadi, International Policy Fellowships, Open Society Institute, Budapest

Islam and Tolerance in Wider Europe offers a refreshing new look at the complex interplay between religion, nationalism and expansionism in an increasingly globalized world, as revealed by a new generation of open society leaders working to build a more tolerant Europe. Each chapter -- focusing on Western Europe, the Caucasus, Russia, Turkey, Central Europe, and the Balkans -- includes several essays by authors involved in the dynamic policymaking processes transforming their countries. The authors have not only spent many years conducting field research investigating the issues presented, but have also participated actively in the democratization of their own `transition' societies. Their policy perspectives benefit from a uniquely `inside out' rather than the usual `outside in' orientation found in most English-language information about their communities. Taken as a whole, the compilation offers insightful insider stories and comparisons across countries and regions. The results are illuminating.

"An excellent book of collected articles on tolerance and Islam in Europe... A very timely volume, as the EU evaluates the impact of eastern enlargement on its future, the dilemma it faces over Turkey and the failure of the peace process in Cyprus, and the apparent 'clash' of cultures in Eurasia. ... This is a necessary read for anyone who wants to understand the complex issues surrounding religion and ethnic nationalism in greater Europe and beyond. - Highly recommended. All readership levels." – Choice

"Strictly addressing Eastern and Southern Europe, this collection’s essays cover the transforming politics and identities of the European Union, the Caucasus, Russia, Turkey, Central Europe, and the Balkans. Contributors include fellows and colleagues who live and work on policy in their research area from the Open Society Institute’s International Policy Fellowships program (which supports policy research). This text is appropriate for academics, policy makers, and the general public." - Reference and User Services Quarterly
