'The twenty chapters of this superbly edited volume etch American Muslims at the crossroads - between immigrant past and citizen future, between indigenous African-American and global Arab-Asian. Neither secular nor Sufi nor Salafi but contingent, mobile, and engaged, they define in their piebald quest the distinctly American path to emancipatory pluralism.' Bruce Lawrence, Duke University
'This important collection is likely to inform discussions on Islam in America for generations to come. If nothing else, it shows how 'Islamic Studies' as a whole is being redefined as we speak.' Sherman A. Jackson, University of Southern California
'A constructive and timely overview of current research on American Islam.' The Times Literary Supplement
This book is a comprehensive introduction to the past and present of American Muslim communities. Chapters discuss demographics, political participation, media, cultural and literary production, conversion, religious practice, education, mosque building, interfaith dialogue, and marriage and family, as well as American Muslim thought and Sufi communities. No comparable volume exists to date.See all Product description

This volume was a great resource for my dissertation on young adult Muslim Americans university campus activists, and it has many great articles written by individual scholar-experts on the subjects that is very accessible reading for the general public.
