Editorial Reviews


Jane I. Smith lifts up for our consideration questions Muslims themselves are taking and issues with which they are struggling. In this way, she moves beyond headlines into the heartlines. Indeed, the strength of Smith's book is her ability to make the reader feel as though he or she is actually in the presence of Muslims, listening and conversing with them about a wide range of human interest stories. ― Journal of Law and Religion

Introductions to Islam are abundant. But one with a focus on the American experience, written in clear, readable English, with a balanced approach, solid documentation, and a list of resources with helpful annotations, is rare. Jane I. Smith's Islam in America has all these characteristics. ―
Middle East Journal

A much needed corrective to the negative stereotypes of Islam and Muslims that prevail in the United States.... The importance of this work is that it demonstrates that there is no monolithic Islam, steadfastly attempting to undermine American values and interests. ―
The Journal of Religious Studies

Fair, accessible, and detailed. ―
The New York Times Book Review

A useful entry level reading... Recommended. ―

is a valuable source for students and scholars who study Islam in America and offers useful features such as a chronology of significant events for American Muslims, a list of resources on the topic, and a glossary. -- Eren Tatari ―
Review of Middle East Studies

From the Back Cover

This richly textured portrait of the Muslim community in the United States today introduces the basic tenets of the Muslim faith, surveys the history of Islam in this country, and profiles the lifestyles, religious practices, and worldviews of American Muslims. The volume pays particular attention to the tension felt by many in this community as they attempt to live faithfully, adhering to their traditions while at the same time adapting to an alien culture that appears to many Muslims to be excessively secular and materialistic. The book also covers the role of women in American Islam, the raising and educating of children, the use of products acceptable to Muslims, appropriate dress and behavior, concerns about prejudice and unfair treatment, and other issues related to life in a country in which Islam is often misunderstood.
A gift for whatever they need
