Religion and Nation: Iranian Local and Transnational Networks in Britain

Shahram Khosravi, Associate Professor of Social Anthropology at Stockholm University, reviews Religion and Nation: Iranian Local and Transnational Networks in Britain. The book is about Iranian immigrant religious practices and how they reconstruct identities in Britain. The author states that as many Iranian Muslims sought refuge in Europe from Iran’s political situation, most Iranian Muslims in the United Kingdom promote a depoliticized Islam.
