Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Curtis (Millennium Chair of the Liberal Arts, Indiana Univ.-Purdue Univ. Indianapolis) has assembled a fascinating and timely resource detailing the history and contributions of Muslim Americans in the United States. More than 300 articles, written by scholars, historians, and experts in Islam and American history, outline the long legacy and impact that Muslim Americans have had since their earliest arrival on slave ships in the 18th century. Familiar names, such as Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, and Karee Abdul-Jabbar share space with lesser-known but no less interesting Americans such as Job Ben Solomon, a 19th-century slave and, later, free religious scholar, and Farooq Kathwari, CEO of Ethan Allen Interiors and philanthropist. Topics include people, movements, cultural and social issues, law, politics, and religious thought. Signed articles are arranged alphabetically by entry and include references for further reading. An index and a list of entries, as well as cross-references within the text, help with navigation. Monochrome photographs are scattered throughout. BOTTOM LINE A necessary and timely resource to remind us of the vital contributions that Muslim Americans have made to our culture and society since its founding. Unique in its focus, this encyclopedia is recommended for all secondary school, public, and academic libraries.—Amanda Sprochi, Univ. of Missouri, Columbia
