Most widely held works by Jan Rath
Western Europe and its Islam( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Immigration from North Africa, Asia and elsewhere has meant a massive influx of Islam into Western Europe. Muslims have organised in many ways and established institutions varying from mosques, halal butchers, schools, broadcasting organisations, and political parties to cemeteries and the like. Slowly but surely the outlines of Islamic communities begun to emerge throughout Western Europe. This book describes and analyses the extent to which there has been a build-up in Western Europe of Islamic institutions recognised by societies. An important driving force behind the institutionalisation are the initiatives of the Muslims themselves, but the larger society intervenes in various ways with establishment of Islamic institutions by stipulating conditions and building in limitations. Includes care studies from the Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom."--Jacket
