When the Western mass-media talk of conversion to Islam, we are bombarded with accounts of vulnerable people brainwashed into a culture of extremism. However, in reality, the vast majority who convert are well-educated, and doing so as the result of a long-considered and heartfelt decision. What is more, their numbers are multiplying.The only exploration of this unique group in British society, this well-argued and powerful book investigates the fascinating

contribution that Western converts to Islam are making to Islamic thought.
