This book argues that the centre of gravity for alternative Islamic discourses will continue to shift from the Arabic-speaking 'heartland' towards the geographical peripheries of the Muslim world and expatriate Muslims in North America and Europe. This process has consequences for the question of authority among Muslims. In view of recent seismic shifts in the political constellation of the Middle East, the trends discussed in this book hold important clues for the possible direction of future developments in that part of the Muslim world.
