Description

This collection, which grew out of a conference held at the University of Massachusetts in 1988, brings together 16 essays about the history, organization, challenges, responses, outstanding thinkers and future prospects of Muslim communities in the USA and Canada. Both Muslims and non-Muslims are represented among the contributors. The essays focus on the manner in which North American Muslims adapt their institutions as they become increasingly an indigenous part of America. Topics covered include Muslim self-images, perceptions of Muslims by non-Muslim Americans, leading Muslim intellectuals, political activity of Muslims in America, Muslims in prisons, Islamic education, the status of Muslim women in North America, and the impact of American foreign policy on Muslims in the USA.show more
