Ghodsee explores howOttoman expansion in Europe

Ghodsee explores how gender relations among the Pomaks had to be renegotiated after the collapse of both Communism and the region's state-subsidized lead and zinc mines. Ottoman expansion in Europe ended with their defeat in the Great Turkish War. This made Turks the largest immigrant Muslim population in Europe.

Sherkat questioned in Foreign Affairs whether some of the Muslim growth projections are accurate as they do not take into account the increasing number of non-religious Muslims. Islam gained its first genuine foothold in continental Europe from onward, with the Umayyad conquest of Hispania. The projections varied greatly by country.

At that time this settlement entirely populated by Muslims was probably one of the biggest settlements of the Kingdom. This and several other Muslim settlements were all destroyed and their inhabitants massacred during the Mongol invasion of Hungary. It also depends on if only observant Muslims or all people of Muslim descent are counted. The projections depend on the level of migration.

The communities consist predominantly of indigenous Europeans of the Muslim faith whose religious tradition dates back several hundred years. Slowly, the Christian forces began a re-conquest of the fractured Taifa kingdoms of Al-Andalus. Prior to the Ottoman conquest, the northern Albanians were Roman Catholic and the southern Albanians were Christian Orthodox, but by the majority were Muslim. After the Mongol empire split, the eastern European section became known as the Golden Horde. These taxes marked their status as subject to Muslim rule, albeit in exchange for protection against foreign and internal aggression.
