Antipodean Ummah: Islam and Muslims in Australia and New Zealand

Authors


Abstract

Islam first came to Australia in the 17th century and to New Zealand in the late 19th century. However, it was to be many years before distinctive Muslim communities would emerge in either country. Although there are some similarities in terms of historical dynamics, the specific modern history of each of these countries, and so of the Muslim communities within them, is quite different.
