Editorial Reviews

Review

From pronouncing the word "Muslim" to explaining Islamic holidays, a new guide written by students at Michigan State University aims to educate the public about Muslim Americans at a time when the issue of Muslims in the West is being intensely debated.
Titled "100 Questions and Answers About Muslim Americans," the guide offers a basic introduction to Islam and the practices of observant Muslims. It's the latest guide by a journalism class at MSU that seeks to inform about various groups, including East Asian Americans, Latinos and Arab Americans.
--Detroit Free Press article by Niraj Warikoo

From the Author

The Michigan State University School of Journalism designed this seriesas a journalistic tool to replace bias and stereotypes with accurateinformation. We create guides that are factual, clear and accessible.We make these guides by asking people to tell us the questions they hear about themselves in everyday conversations. Some of the questions aresimple, but the answers seldom are.Sometimes, we must interpret the questions to find the meaning behindthem.

We search for answers in studies, surveys, books andresearch. We ask experts. Our goal is to answer the first-levelquestions in ways that are accurate and clear. We respect the people who ask the questions as well as the people the answers describe.

These 100 questions and answers about Muslim Americans do not do justice to a religion that has 1.6 billion followers in more than 100countries. There is also the complicated confluence of religion,culture, politics and half a dozen other influences.

While mostMuslims are not Arabs, Arabic is the language of Islam. While we do usesome Arabic terms, we generally use the English equivalents.Our hope is that readers will start with these answers, use the resource section to dig deeper and talk with their Muslim co-workers andneighbors. Each will have different perspectives. True understandingdoes not come with 100 questions, or even 1,000, but each one helps.

Geri Alumit Zeldes, guide editor, is an associate professor and director ofjournalism graduate studies at Michigan State University. She isco-author of "Reporting on Islam: A Teacher's Guide." Film creditsinclude "Arabs, Jews & the News" and "The Death of an Imam."

Joe Grimm, series editor, is visiting editor in residence at Michigan State University's Schoolof Journalism.
