This book represents a contribution to the studies of Muslim minorities, and can be compared and contrasted to the analysis of Islam in Europe and in the USA. Besides presenting data about the largest Muslim community in Latin America, an area of the globe that is still ignored by those who study the "Muslim diaspora", this book contributes to the understanding of religious dynamics in minority contexts, as well as issues involving integration of immigrants.
