Everyday Lived Islam in Europe complements existing studies by focusing not on mosque-going, activist Muslims, but on how people live out their faith in schools, workplaces and homes, and in dealing with problems of health, wellbeing and relationships. 

As well as offering fresh empirical studies of everyday lived Islam, the book offers a new approach which calls for the study of ‘official’ religion and everyday ‘tactical’ religion in relation to one another. It discusses what this involves, the methods it requires, and how it relates to existing work in Islamic Studies.

This book appeared as part of the Ashgate Ashgate AHRC/ESRC Religion and Society Series.
