American Islamophobia: Understanding the Roots and Rise of Fear

"American Islamophobia: Understanding the Roots and Rise of Fear" delves deep into the unsettling resurgence of anti-Muslim sentiment in the United States, exploring its entrenchment in law, policy, and societal attitudes. Recognized on Forbes' list of "10 Books To Help You Foster A More Diverse And Inclusive Workplace," this compelling read by Khaled A. Beydoun, with insights from Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, offers a critical race theory perspective on how official narratives and legal frameworks propagate Islamophobia. Published on May 14, 2019, the book traces the historical lineage of anti-Muslim racism from the era of enslaved African Muslims to the contemporary implications of the war on terror. Beydoun not only charts the impact on Muslim Americans across diverse backgrounds but also proposes actionable strategies for fostering alliances to combat systemic bigotry. Ideal for college students studying racial justice and religious freedom, this work challenges readers to reconsider the roots of fear and the power of inclusive solidarity.
