Product Description:

“This book offers valuable expert analysis and activist reflections on Islamophobia and anti-Americanism. This is the first book in the market to explore Islamophobia and anti-Americanism as interrelated global phenomena. The volume traces the effects of Islamophobia and anti-Americanism on public opinion in America and Muslim-majority states. It also offers an assessment of post-September 11 media depictions of Islam and Muslims. Additionally, the book examines the impact of American government policies and the prospects of reform in the Muslim world on anti-American and anti-Muslim sentiments. The work also looks at how various government and non-government actors are helping or hindering the quest for remedies. In particular, the book assesses interfaith encounters and the role of American Muslims in bridging the growing perception gap between America and the Muslim world.  Contributors to this volume provide perspectives based on research material as well as personal encounters. Some of the writers are leading scholars in the field of Middle East studies and Muslim-Christian relations, while others are civil society leaders in America and the Muslim world.”
