Muslims in the states in the present world. The Appendix in the book deals with the 195 states in the present world. Basically it is a classification of the states together with the criteria used for the classification. But even other criteria are possible, and quite interesting. Here is an example:
Migration streams. We are now, since some years, witnessing migration streams of people of an extraordinary magnitude, length, complexity and dispersion. In the relatively recent past this is a new phenomenon and it is causing most considerable political problems, and drastic political opinion changes, in the destiny countries. But even if this is so it seems to me that these effects of the migration have been much more discussed and debated than its reasons. A discussion and and an analysis of the reasons therefore seems most appropriate. But which place is the proper one for this? There are several possibilities for this, but I have decided to put it here.
