From political leaders and human rights activists to rap musicians and NBA basketball stars, this diverse collection of profiles documents the contributions of fifty male and fifty female Muslims to a wide variety of different fields and professions. As an exploration and celebration of what it means to be a Muslim today, it offers a colourful and vibrant counterpoint to the stereotypes of religious fundamentalists and masked suicide bombers that have become all too commonplace in Western representations of Islam."Notable Muslims" is unique among works of a similar nature in its contemporary focus; eighty-five of the one hundred figures profiled are alive today, and many have been interviewed personally by Natana Delong-Bas for this project. With a complete set of references and web links for every profile and indispensable resource for students and teachers and a rich source of inspiration for all those committed to building bridges of interfaith and intercultural understanding in the modern world.
