Based on around 400 in-depth interviews with young Muslims, discover the similarities and differences between ethnic and racial groups such as Iranians, Arab Americans and African Americans. Find out how they rate President Obama as a national and world leader, where they stand on the Israeli-Palestine issue and how the media impacts on them.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This assured work completes the author's triptych of insightful studies of young Muslims in Australia, Britain and now America. Despite deep reservations about their country's foreign policy and an unsympathetic media, they have not given up on the American dream. Confident and bi-cultural, they share their hopes and fears. The text is enlivened with some excellent cartoons.--Philip Lewis, University of Bradford

Clearly one of the best books out today describing the global identities of a new generation of politically savvy and culturally diverse American Muslims. Kabir's 'life-stories' approach is perfectly suited for cultivating the diverse voices of Muslims in America.--Tony Gaskew, University of Pittsburgh-Bradford, and Board President of the Consortium for Educational Resources on Islamic Studies (CERIS)

"Clearly one of the best books out today describing the global identities of a new generation of politically savvy and culturally diverse American Muslims.

"Young American Muslims: Dynamics of Identity is an incisive, informative and accessible study, written in well-organised and succinct chapters promoting dialogue and critical engagement. It reveals the author's connection and empathy towards issues affecting her interviewees while at the same time offering an astute critical analysis of a diversity of issues and attitudes. Giving voice to young Muslims living in America and a space to tell their stories, Kabir's study is ultimately optimistic in its appreciation of the maturity and fair-mindedness of the participants which are crucial for establishing as well as continuing constructive dialogues in American society" -- Maja Milatovic, University of Edinburgh,
LSE Review of Books


"Multidimensional in nature...It tackles issues of ideologies within and outside of Islam, the formation of perceptions toward the Muslim community, demographic factors which interact with the Muslim identity, and an array of other topics which the author skillfully assesses and considers in this work...Moreover, the tables, research methodologies, and findings are presented in a fashion which makes reading and interpretation easy to do. Despite such simplicity, the book retains absolute creditability through its solid research, careful scrutiny to detail, and revealing findings which paint a story worth telling." -- Contemporary Sociology: A Journal of Reviews


"As an introductory work, young American Muslims is an accessible and readable book that is suitable for an undergraduate audience. The qualitative content and diverse array of experiences would make it a useful addition as a supporting text in anthropology, sociology, and Islamic studies courses. Kabir's book is also an important methodological contribution, due to its research transparency and researcher reflexivity." -- Logan Cochrane, University of British Columbia, Journal of Religious & Theological Information
