This book brings together the foremost scholars of Islam and Muslim politics in Australia to consider the relationship between Australian politics and society and Muslim Communities in Australia. - The book responds to such questions as: - Is there a Muslim community in Australia? - How do national differences affect the assumed 'Muslim community'? - How do Muslim residents in Australia identify themselves? - How has the experience of migration affected their sense of identity? - Does the establishment of Islamic schooling and finance amount to the separation of Muslims from the mainstream of Australian society? - How has the Australian mainstream media portrayed Muslims in Australia and how has this portrayal changed over the last 30 years? - By addressing such critical issues, the book will present a well-rounded picture of the Muslim experience in Australia and highlight key issues of concern for the Muslim community.
