'Wolfreys' writing is that of a political insider, underpinned by academic rigour. This book is a wake-up call, warning of the creep of Islamophobia into mainstream French political discourse and its dire consequences if left unchecked. It is vital reading for policy makers and commentators alike.' --Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, author of 'The Enemy Within: A Tale of Muslim Britain'

'A powerful tale of France's Islamophobic spiral. Rich in detail and with a keen ear for the ironies of moral panics around veiling, violence, and values, Wolfreys shows France's importance in this globally emerging phenomenon. A compelling argument for the links between political Islamophobia, neoliberalism, and the failures of the left.' --Arun Kundnani, author of 'The Muslims Are Coming!'

'An authoritative and lucid account of France's descent into societal disaster. This excruciating and at times shocking catalogue of political mis-steps strongly suggests a far more dangerous 'enemy within' than the Muslim one we constantly hear about. Could the French experience be repeated here in the UK? Wolfreys' book is a warning to us all' -- James Fergusson, author of 'Al-Britannia, My Country: A Journey Through Muslim Britain'



James Wolfreys lectures in French and European politics at King's College London. He is co-author (with Peter Fysh) of The Politics of Racism in France.
