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

,

“Drawing on her own life and the lives of the many women she interviewed, Karim reveals the subtle and uneasy ways in which racial, ethnic, class, and gender divisions in the US interact to challenge the idealized notion of a united Muslim community.”
-CHOICE

Format: Paperback
Excellent explanation and analysis--puts names to many of the isms facing the American Ummah. I always enjoy meeting fellow American sisters in text and Karim does a wonderful job at revealing the intricacies of her subjects' lives. She has produced an enjoyable as well as educational text.

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Though this book gives an interesting and well thought out account of Muslim women's experience, the author makes the argument that the group of Muslim women she identifies with is more inclusive, welcoming, and follows Islamic beliefs better than other Muslim women. While it is a well-written book, the obvious bias makes it limited in its ability to discuss the intricacies of Muslim interactions within group.
