This volume focuses on the religious beliefs and practices of the Christian, Hindu, Muslim, and Sikh communities in Birmingham—one of the most multicultural parts of Britain. Based on an in-depth study of more than three thousand teenagers in Walsall, Growing Up in Multifaith Britain demonstrates that religion is an active and decisive factor in understanding communities and individuals—as well as crucially important for teachers, social workers, and developers of social policy. Growing Up in Multifaith Britain makes a strong contribution toward understanding radical Islam in the United Kingdom today, presenting highly topical research on the ways in which it influences the lives and actions of young Muslims.
