A compelling alternative analysis of the Trojan Horse affair, shining much-needed light on a serious but neglected vector of educational inequality in the UK. --Reza Gholami, University of Birmingham

This highly engaging book charts the pervasive and politically motivated racialization of Muslim communities in Britain today. Detailed in its use of evidence and comprehensive in its analysis, it should be compulsory reading for everybody interested in the working of the state. --Nasar Meer, University of Edinburgh
