By Geneive Abdo. Noted author and journalist Geneive Abdo travels across the United States, visiting schools, mosques, Islamic centers, radio stations, and homes. Gaining unprecedented access to Muslim communities, she shares candid findings of a community tired of being judged by Americans' perceptions of Muslims overseas. American Muslims want to tell their own stories and Abdo brings these stories vividly to life, allowing us to hear personal experiences of American Muslims in their own voices and inviting us to understand their hopes and their fears.


The younger generation of Muslims in particular is charting a different way of life; they are following new imams and not sacrificing their Muslim indentity for American assimilation. And unlike their parents, they do not define themselves by their ethnic background, as Pakistani, Palestinian, or Yemeni for example. Instead they see themselves as belonging to a universal faith. Through their new organizations and websites, they exchange ideas about how to create a more Islamic lifestyle. Abdo's work is Inspiring, insightful, tough-minded, and even-handed...a helpful text for those seeking to know the truth about America's Muslims and a welcomed presentation for a Muslim Community seeking to be understood. Oxford University Press (2006), English, Hardcover: 214 pages.
