Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Prior to the 9/11 attacks, U.S. anti-Muslim sentiments were largely hidden, and their overt manifestations were generally limited to fringe hate groups. Since 9/11, there has been a backlash of violence and discrimination against Muslims in America; anti-Muslim sentiments and Islamophobia have reached an unprecedented level. In this highly readable and informative book, Peek (sociology, Colorado State Univ.) allows readers to hear from 140 Muslim Americans on their personal encounters with prejudice, discrimination, and general harassment in their day-to-day existence. Although Muslims constitute about two percent of the American population, a sizable section of the U.S. political Right has now made Muslim bashing an integral part of its sociopolitical and cultural discourse. Peek's research ended before the most recent public campaigns against Muslims, but this does not diminish the value of her work as she seeks to explain how and why vilification and scapegoating of a minority intensifies after a major catastrophe. VERDICT This is a book that should be read by all concerned Americans as well as students of ethnic relations.—Nader Entessar, Univ. of South Alabama, Mobile
