The rise of radical Islam has placed British Muslims under unprecedented scrutiny. This ground-breaking study examines the complexities of their experience by focusing on Yemenis who settled in ports in the early 20th century. Through the stories of sailors in Cardiff, South Shields and Liverpool, and industrial workers in Sheffield, Birmingham and Manchester, it traces the development of community organizations and the impact of government policies, shedding valuable new light on Islam in Britain today.
