Insightful. . . . Bunt paints a rich and comprehensive picture of the evolving Islamic discourses in cyberspace and their cause and effect relationship with the equally shifting notion of Islamic authority in the digital age." --American Religion

Comments on Hashtag Islam (2018):

"For contemporary Islam, the internet has become an empowering tool for religious teaching, mobilization, and networking. Hashtag Islam provides a clear and well-written focus on the impact of cyber-technologies on issues of faith and authority, offering insights into the ways in which the internet has become integrated into the dissemination of Islamic knowledge within global and local contexts. A key contribution that will attract students from an array of disciplines, including Islamic studies, Middle Eastern studies, and political science."—Vahideh Golzard, University of Leeds

"Hashtag Islam--the newest work by one of the pioneers in reporting on Islam in cyberspace--reflects an incredible range of materials, views, and counterviews. It provides a valuable corrective to the tendency to focus on the negative and political uses of the internet and social media by jihadists without due consideration of the more everyday uses by all kinds of Muslims."—Daniel Varisco, Qatar University
