Özet

Politics of Ethnicity, Identity and Religion is a study of a micro-Muslim community in Britain. The book analyses how Turkish identity is constructed in the Diaspora through an ethnographic study of the role of family, culture, organizations and religious groups in the reproduction and transmission of traditional values to the young generation. This book informs students, academics, politicians and policy makers in particular about the traditions, values, beliefs and cultural traits of an ethnic community within a multicultural context. This study shows that Turkish and Islamic identities are not fixed and monolith.
