Summary Focusing on Turin, the northern Italian point of entry for so many Senegalese, States of Grace chronicles the arrival and formation of a transnational African Islamic community in a largely Catholic Western European country. Carter shows how the Senetgalese migration calls into question the European interstate system, the future of the nation-state, and the nature of its relationship with non-European states.
