Product Description


'An excellent and wide-ranging exploration of how the term Islamophobia has been applied in academic discourses and general representations of Muslims throughout the world. This thought provoking anthology contributes significantly to our understanding of a much used and abused concept.' --Ziauddin Sardar, author of Desperately Seeking Paradise and Balti Britain

'Islamophobia has become a dominant form of racist expression across the contemporary global North. Thinking Through Islamophobia provides an especially welcome, timely, and varied set of accounts about what the phenomenon covers, why the current upsurge, and how effectively to think about it.' --David Theo Goldberg, author of The Threat of Race: Reflections on Racial Neoliberalism

'Thinking Through Islamophobia is a rare endeavour of collective scholarship that is timely, prescient and seminal. Challenging us to develop Critical Muslim Studies in post-western epistemologies, it provides exemplary analyses of the imbricated formations of racism, Orientalism, secularism and post-colonialism largely silenced by contemporary social and political theory.' --Barnor Hesse, Northwestern University

Format: Paperback
The diversity of the authors is an added bonus; what really matters is the quality of, and approaches to critical thought that went into each entry. The reader is taken along a series of problems and paradoxes that cannot be resolved by recourse to hypocrisy of a nation-state ("if only they lived up to their ideals") or a presentation of data ("so there you have it!"). Instead, each text provides the reader with heuristic devices to problematize and analyze different logics of Islamophobia without reducing it to rhetorical strategies of right-wingers (or left-wingers for that matter). It is a must read for those who are committed to the study of racism, religion, politics and critical theory.
