In the constant deluge of media coverage on Islam, Muslims are often portrayed as terrorists, refugees, radicals, or victims, depictions that erode human responses of concern, connection, or even a willingness to learn about Muslims. On Islam helps break this cycle with information and strategies to understand and report the modern Muslim experience. Journalists, activists, bloggers, and scholars offer insights into how Muslims are represented in the media today and offer tips for those covering Islam in the future. Interviews provide personal and often moving firsthand accounts of people confronting the challenges of modern life while maintaining their Muslim faith, and brief overviews provide a crash course on Muslim beliefs and practices. A concise and frank discussion of the Muslim experience, On Islam provides facts and perspective at a time when truth in journalism is more vital than ever.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This book goes a long way in combating Islamophobia and exposing how media representations often exacerbate the ignorant fear of Islam and Muslims. - Publishers Weekly

On Islam: Muslims and the Media couldn't appear at a more useful time. . . It is an indispensable guide for reporters and for anyone who wants to gain a more informed, nuanced view of the faith and its adherents. - Bloom Magazine

The formal essays are equally fresh, candid, and direct. . . . 'Do Muslims Believe in Jesus?' and 'What is jihad?' Read this book to find the answers. - Bloom Magazine

On Islam: Muslims and the Media discusses the portrayal of Muslims in the media through a series of essays and other writings. - Margarita H. Tapia, Communication Booknotes Quarterly

On Islam responds to a clear need of the political moment— the need for more interaction and discussion between journalists, writers and editors of various sorts, and academics. . . . At a time when many academics are drawn to work and writing addressed to the public, the collection represents one attempt to provide journalists writing about Muslims and Islam with a useful model for continuing this work in the future. - Journal of Islamic Studies
