This compact book, which consists of an introduction and six chapters, deals with different aspects of higher education in contexts where Muslims make up a majority and a minority of the population. It is a valuable addition to the comparative education literature despite being uneven and of rather poor production quality. One needs to get past certain essential problems with the volume before appreciating its value.
