In the wake of the San Bernardino and Orlando shootings, as well as the Paris and Brussels attacks, and in the midst of the right wing populism of US Presidential campaigns and UK Referendum debates, the political rhetoric around Muslim migration has sunk to an all-time low. The Bengal Diaspora provides a much needed antidote. By studying Muslim migration across continents the book provides insights into a global climate of Islamophobia, and it challenges us think critically about migration theory’s universalizing logic. In this review essay we will focus on the three areas of study in which the book makes the most striking intervention, as well as three questions is leaves unanswered or poses for future work.
