The Cambridge Companion to American Islam offers a scholarly overview of the state of research on American Muslims and American Islam. The book presents the reader with a comprehensive discussion of the debates, challenges and opportunities that American Muslims have faced through centuries of American history. This volume also covers the creative ways in which American Muslims have responded to the myriad serious challenges that they have faced and continue to face in constructing a religious praxis and complex identities that are grounded in both a universal tradition and the particularities of their local contexts. The book introduces the reader to some of the many facets of the lives of American Muslims that can only be understood in their interactions with Islam's entanglement in the American experiment.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The twenty chapters of this superbly edited volume etch American Muslims at the crossroads - between immigrant past and citizen future, between indigenous African-American and global Arab-Asian. Neither secular nor Sufi nor Salafi but contingent, mobile, and engaged, they define in their piebald quest the distinctly American path to emancipatory pluralism.' Bruce Lawrence, Duke University
'This important collection is likely to inform discussions on Islam in America for generations to come. If nothing else, it shows how 'Islamic Studies' as a whole is being redefined as we speak.' Sherman A. Jackson, University of Southern California
'A constructive and timely overview of current research on American Islam.' The Times Literary Supplement
