London Youth, Religion, and Politics (Oxford University Press 2016) is a groundbreaking new book that offers insights into the lives of London’s Muslim, Christian, and non-religious youth in comparative perspective. It provides evidence to build a more hopeful picture. In times when the politics of immigration and diversity are in flux, this book will prompt debate on multiculturalism in practice.
Signed copies of the book will be available to purchase during the event.
