Spain’s ‘new Muslims’

A FORMER New York Times correspondent has penned a new book tracing the history of Spain’s ‘new Muslims’.

Al-Andalus Rediscovered discusses the integration of Muslim boatpeople, students, women and clerics, and how they fare in a largely Roman Catholic region.

“Spain and Portugal have such long and conflicted history with the Islamic world,” said author Marvine Howe.

“I focus primarily on the new Muslims, including the economic migrants who come via pateras from North Africa, the 2004 Madrid terrorist attacks and the impact of the economic crisis on integration efforts,” she added.
