‘From generation Jihad to generation M, this book attempts to get inside the minds and lives of young British Muslims to provide a complex and nuanced picture dispelling the one-dimensional simplistic narrative we are more accustomed to.’

  • Sayeeda Warsi, the Right Honourable The Baroness Warsi

‘A timely antidote to the, arguably, twisted characterisation and popular perception of British Muslims in circulation.’
