This book identifies a new Islamic form in Turkey: Muslimism. Neither fundamentalism nor liberal religion, Muslimism engages modernity through Islamic categories and practices. The book analyses how the Turkish Islamic organizational landscape has developed over the course of time against the background of three major changes: the transformation of Turkish Muslims from migrants to permanent residents in Europe, the rooting of Islam in Europe, and the societal and political changes in Turkey in the past decades.

It is now some 5 years after the book was written, and just over a week since Erdogan and his party won reelection in Turkey. The book is still quite timely in analysing the AKP and its influence on a modernising Turkey. Each of the 13 chapters is contributed by a different author; most of whom are Turkish. Many aspects of the AKP are scrutinised. Several chapters address the fears that the AKP might have radical Islamist elements who would impose a strict religious framework over Turkish society.

One chapter makes a striking comparison with predominantly Christian countries, where the main Christian denomination is Catholic. The Catholic church has a hierarchy and a doctrine with which it often tries to influence elections in those nations; especially when politicians running for office are Catholic. They are typically expected to hew to Catholic doctrine. Even in the US, this might be familiar to readers. In contrast, the Muslim caliphate fell over 500 years ago. The main denominations of Islam in Turkey have no analog of the Catholic church. So a Muslim politician has more ideological space in which to maneuver. A good point that jars with the stereotypical notions in Europe and the US about Islamist radicalism.

Another chapter looks at the sometimes uneasy relations between Erdogan's government and the US administration under Bush. This was awkward when the US invaded Iraq in 2003 and Turkey declined to offer some bases and other material support. Yet the chapter tries to explain that this was not due to a radical religious agenda, but instead of valid questions about the reasons for invasion. Something subsequently borne out when no weapons of mass destruction were uncovered in Iraq.
