The book provides a lively account of the cosmopolitan lives of British Asian Muslim women. Recent studies on the topic of Muslim women have yet to address the ways in which women form and connect with varying communities. This book demonstrates how Muslim women living in Britain of South Asian origin connect with numerous spaces such as religious, virtual, political, and creative spheres and argues that they need to be understood in cosmopolitan and humane ways. British Asian Muslim women cannot be continued to be perceived in monolithic ways and that this level of diversity needs to be recognized by the state in matters concerning integration of Muslims in British society.
British Asian Muslim Women, Multiple Spatialities and Cosmopolitanism will appeal to students and academics in Sociology, Anthropology, Politics and Women's Studies.
