Editorial Reviews


"Sirin and Fine...render visible the complex lives of a profoundly maligned and misunderstood group--Muslim-American youth. They deploy surveys, focus groups, in-depth interviews, and identity maps to explore how Muslim-American youth are creating and re-creating themselves within these politically and socially charged times . . . This is a must read."
-M. Brinton Lykes, Lynch School of Education and Center for Human Rights and International Justice, Boston College

"This book provides a unique, powerful, rich, and nuanced understanding of identity development among Muslim-American youth. The publication of Muslim American Youth is a landmark event in developmental science."
-Richard M. Lerner, Bergstrom Chair in Applied Developmental Science, Tufts University

"This book will be particularly useful for any professional who needs well-researched support for what their instinct tells them their community needs."
-"VOYA Voices of Youth Advocates",

"This work complexly and richly captures the diversity in the lived identities of Muslim-American youth, highlighting the power and potential of mixed methodologies in studying the phenomenon of life on the hyphen."
-"Harvard Educational Review",

"With heart and eloquence, the authors illuminate vital concerns about our society's treatment of Muslim-American youth."
-"Youth Today",
