Being German, Becoming Muslim is the result of the author, Esra Özyürek’s research on converts to Islam in Germany, a country which remains suspicious about embracing the religion. The book provides a close look at the struggle facing German converts to prove that they are still part of German culture, and their attempts to distance themselves from immigrant Muslims. Aysegul Kayaoglu writes that the book is an original and illuminating analysis, and recommends it to anyone interested in race, religion and conversion in Germany.
