A growing sense of unease pervades Europe. Migrants moving in numbers have destabilised a shared self-image of civilisation. At core is the fear of a growing Muslim population. In this timely series of lectures Aamir Mufti puts Europe's new strangers into a necessary long-view perspective in which Europe's past is inescapably conjoined to the present. Only then, contends Mufti, can an honest discussion be properly had. The future of a post-colonial understanding of the world depends on it.
