Globalization, Americanization and British Muslim Identitiy

Globalization, Americanization and British Muslim Identitiy

Author : Saied Reza Ameli

this is the first empirical study to explore the impact of globalization upon the construction of Muslim identity in the West, in particular in britain. Drawing on a number of theoretical models, this book examines the way in which globalization benerates, paradoxically, two paralles processes: homogenization and heterogenization. The former process is chiefly characterized by increasing Westernization, while the latter is observable in the different forms that growing Islamic resistance has taken in Muslim societies worldwide. By examining secondgeneration young adults born in the UK of migrant Muslim parents and the extent to which the western global cultural industry has influenced their identity the study suggests that through the process of hererogenization cultural forms have become diversified and fragmented, and identity construction diffused.
