The meaning of being Muslim has undergone enormous changes in the aftermath of the bombings in New York in 2001. The initial reaction of media outlets was to portray them as a global threat. In social-cultural and political context, they were thought to be unable to fit into Western societies. For example, in a major survey, over half of Australians preferred that their relatives not to marry into a Muslim family.

This book examines the extent to which falsehoods relate attitudes and perceptions of young Muslim and Western students in German, Australian and New Zealand educational institutions to each other. It also addresses the views, pressures, unconscious biases, presumptions and expectations, social cultural and religious influences that drive the relationship between the two communities.
