Editorial Reviews

Review

”Karim’s sensitive ethnographic work and well-written analysis provide engaging insights into the lives of contemporary American Muslim women. . . . [and] flow beautifully to its thoughtful conclusion.”

-Karen Isaksen Leonard,author of Muslims in the United States: The State of Research

American Muslim Women: Negotiating Race, Class, and Gender within the Ummah by Spelman College Professor of Religious Studies Jamillah Karim is a welcome departure from the usual portrayals of Muslim women in the U.S. as victims of their religion.”

-Color Lines,

“Jamillah Karim’s new book, American Muslim Women, is an insightful, well-written examination of the space where religion and race intersect in America. Implementing adept ethnographic skills to conduct interviews in two cities across the tangible ethnic boundaries between Sout hAsian and African American Muslims, Karim provides insight into the complexities and tensions within the Muslim ummah, or community.”

-Journal Of Middle East Women’s Studies,

If you want to understand the complexities of the Muslim community, there is no better place to start than with this book. Ms. Karim did a wonderful job of capturing the nuances of race, class and gender in the Muslim community.

This book is extremely well written. Though it is definitely not a light read and I often had to consult the dictionary, I am glad the author did not dumb it down to make it more palatable. I also felt it was biased but I recognize that we're all biased based on our own experiences whether we realize it or not. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I look forward to more work from this author.

Format: Paperback
I picked up the book as I was interested in the topic from personal experiences and from my educational background. The book makes me wish I took a class on the topic during my undergraduate years on continued studying religious studies in grad school. Definitely more study in the subject area needs to be explored and this book is an excellent start to opening up the conversation, and this book contributes immensely to it. Actually it is will be a cornerstone in the field.
