Summary "The Muslim population of interwar Europe interacted intensely with members of other communities. The Ahmadi-Lahori missions of Berlin and Working, for example, engaged in an intense correspondence and exchange of ideas with Albanian religious leaders. Essays in this volume discuss the emergence of a distinctly "European" Islam (a genesis that took place much earlier than many scholars realize) and the fraught interplay between Islam and politics, especially the development of Muslim "agendas" by certain governments. The editors also provides essays that address the richness and significance of debates within Europe's Muslim community. the attempts by Nazis to foment "jihad," and the operational strategies of transnational networks in the 1920s and 1930s."--BOOK JACKET
