Nadia Marzouki investigates how Islam has become so contentious in American politics. She argues that public controversies over Islam in the United States primarily reflect the American public's profound divisions and ambivalence toward freedom of speech and the legitimacy of liberal secular democracy.
Nadia Marzouki is a research fellow at the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) in Paris. She is the coeditor, with Olivier Roy, of Religious Conversions in the Mediterranean World (2013) and, with Duncan McDonnell and Olivier Roy, of Saving the People: How Populist Parties Hijack Religion (2016).
Kambiz GhaneaBassiri, Reed College, author of A History of Islam in America: From the New World to the New World Orde:For the past three decades, Americans have been thinking about Islam and Muslims to enact policies related to immigration, national security, citizenship, cultural belonging, and international relations. Marzouki astutely asks how this has affected public discourse and the politics of religion in the contemporary United States. Her answers are refreshingly nuanced, empirically and theoretically grounded, and global in their scope. This is a timely and immensely thought-provoking book.
Christopher Bail, Duke University, author of Terrified: How Anti-Muslim Fringe Organizations Became Mainstream:The integration of Islam in the United States and France is routinely contrasted as evidence of the power of multiculturalism in the United States. Yet as Marzouki so deftly describes, the United States now faces the same rise in anti-Muslim populism that is so firmly entrenched in France. This book will be of interest not only to those who study Islam in the United States and Europe, but to those who study the integration of ethnic and religious minorities more broadly.
Denise A. Spellberg, University of Texas at Austin, author of Thomas Jefferson's Qur'an: Islam and the Founders:Marzouki provides a unique approach to contemporary American political discourse surrounding Islam and documents vital results likely to remain relevant to readers in the United States and Europe for quite some time.
