Format: Paperback
The book provides a very good contemporary view of Islamophobia is American. The book doesn't seem balance, the articles seem to be more about remedies than the causes of Islamophobia. None-the-less, this is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the preception of Islam after Sept 11.

Format: Paperback
This book helps to reveal just how much prejudice Americans have for Arabs and Muslims in America. It also talks about why Muslims hate America, or do they? Do Muslims hate America, or do they hate the policies of America against their countries? You need to do some research to get that answer because this book does not fully give it to you. What it does give is information in the form of polls and surveys that show Americans think just like the media tells them to think. If the media says "bad Arab" or "bad Muslim," guess what our fellow Americans are going to think. I hate to call it brain washing, but how else could you describe the aftermath of the Oklahoma City Bombing when the media said police were looking for two "Middle Eastern men" and that resulted in Muslims and people of Arab descent being attacked. We all know how much love was shown to Muslims after 9-11. Some Americans even spread their love to Indian Sikhs in the form of bullets to their heads.

The problems that I had with the book, and this is coming from someone who wanted to write a book himself about Islamaphobia, is that it was a bit too soft. The guy who is the editor of the book, Mohamed Nimer, only wrote the introduction and a different person writes every other chapter. (Why his picture is on the back of the book when he only wrote 2% of it puzzles me) The only writer that I agreed with and came close to explaining where the problem of terrorism or anti-Americanism starts is Louis Cantor. He hit the nail on the head when he said terrorism is a reaction to American Foreign Policy. The U.S. Government then starts the cycle, the American people suffer, and they then turn against their fellow Muslim Americans with anger. I recommend that people who really want to know where terrorism really comes from to read "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy by John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt."
