1 Review
The legal and political habitus of Greece's Muslim population is discussed in a fascinating interdisciplinary historical overview of both indigenous minority and immigrant communities providing insights into the evolution and current state of minority and migration law. The book also speaks in a piercing fashion to the scholarly debate on communitarianism and liberalism, as Greece s "sui generis" legal tradition and embrace of community rights often runs contrary to the country s own liberal legal order and international human rights standards. How notions of ethnicity and citizenship have been challenged by recent Muslim immigration is further explored. The reader is therefore treated to a comprehensive analysis of minority rights pertaining to 'Old' and 'New' Islam in Greece within the European context.
