Religious Newcomers and the Nation State free pdf In recent years, it has become clear that the integration of Islam into the political and social framework of European societies will be crucial to the successful future of the region. This volume steps back from the often heated debates over the issue to view it in a wider context, through historical and comparative analyses of the integration of religious minorities in the Netherlands and France. In addition, it broadens the scope of the question by focusing not only on Muslims but on Protestant and Catholic religious minorities as well.
