Summary

In this richly textured, critically acclaimed portrait of American Muslims, Jane I. Smith introduces the basic tenets of the Muslim faith, surveys the history of Islam in North America, and profiles the lifestyles, religious practices, and worldviews of Muslims in the United States. She focuses particularly on the tensions of living faithfully and adhering to tradition while adapting to an American way of life, and she addresses the role of women, the raising and educating of children, appropriate dress and behavior, and incidences of prejudice and unfair treatment.The second edition of Islam in Americafeatures a new chapter on the post-9/11 period, discussing civil rights and profiling, participation in politics, transformations in Islamic law, pluralism and identity issues, foreign influences, anti-Islamic sentiment, intra-Islamic tensions, and the quest for a moderate Islam. Source notes, the glossary, and additional resources also reflect recent developments and scholarship.
