In ‘The Infidel within’, Humayun Ansari draws on published research, augmented with his own archival enquiries and first-hand experience of some of the key themes involved, to attempt an integrated history of the Muslim presence in Britain. Among the topics addressed are migration and settlement, the evolution of a British Muslim Identity, Muslim women and families, Muslims and education and the growing mobilization of Muslim in Britain’s political, religious and economic life. The author is the Director of the Centre for Ethnic Minority Studies and Equal Opportunities, and a Senior Lecturer in the Department of History, at the Royal Holloway College, University of London.
