Philip Lewis lectures in the Department for Peace Studies, a world leading research center in peace and conflict studies at the University of Bradford. He is the Inter-Faith Adviser to the Bishop of Bradford, sits on the Commission of British Muslims and Islamophobia and is the author of Islamic Britain (IB Tauris).
"Philip Lewis moves beyond a simple narrative of "good Muslims" and "bad Muslims" to capture the anxieties, idiosyncrasies and challenges rumbling within British Islam. Written with the authority of an experienced interfaith activist and academic, this book is an insightful guide into the communities, complex dynamics and diverse voices.."
