"Most books on Islam these days stress the negative, but Anouar Majid builds a highly personal and well-documented blueprint for proudly being American and Muslim at the same time. Beneath the media-hyped `clash of civilizations' there is far too much `trash talking' and not nearly enough reasoned exploration of the principles that should unite the best values of both the United States and the Islamic world. As the current `Arab Spring' demonstrates, the future belongs to those who challenge the status quo rather than pandering to past prejudice and perpetuating the injustice that tarnishes all sides. What makes this book stand out from the rest are both Majid's self-reflection as a Muslim from Morocco and his passion for retelling the principles that at one time made the American experiment the envy of the world. As Majid persuasively argues, Americans and Muslims do not straddle a rigid cultural divide but can build on shared values if everyone recognizes that past prejudice is the enemy of future progress." --Daniel Martin Varisco, Hofstra University, author of Islam Obscured: The Rhetoric of Anthropological Representation "Anouar Majid's Islam and America is a bold and courageous book, putting a millennium of history, theology, and culture into context and challenging assumptions on all sides. Islam and America should be read by all who are perplexed by the catastrophic relations between the United States and the Muslim world, between Israel and her neighbors--who might come away with renewed faith that we still have it in our power to begin the world anew." --Robert J. Allison, Suffolk University, author of The Crescent Obscured: The United States and the Muslim World, 1776-1815 "Possessed of a profound knowledge of several societies, Anouar Majid is that very rare writer in our noisily polemical culture--someone who offers true wisdom and understanding." --Pankaj Mishra, author of Tempations of the West: How to Be Modern in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tibet and Beyond
