Pub. Date:
The content of this pertinent and useful two-volume reference is made up of a wide variety of first-hand sources and primary documents. American Muslims tell their own stories in many of the selections, through autobiographical interviews or accounts, and through statements from Muslim-American organizations. Many selections present accounts and analysis of political and global events, including the opinions and statements of US presidents, and a wealth of polls, interviews, and studies. Terrorism and 9/11, gender and Islam, the challenges of citizenship, race, and religion are the subject of separate sections, each containing a selection of readings. Readers curious to know what American Muslims think and why and what their lives are like in the US will find this a valuable reference to enrich their knowledge.
