 About the Book 

After September 11, many in the American public and media zeroed in on Muslims in America and the world, irresponsibly linking, intentionally or not, Muslims at large with terrorism. This well-researched book explores this focus and its implications.MoreAfter September 11, many in the American public and media zeroed in on Muslims in America and the world, irresponsibly linking, intentionally or not, Muslims at large with terrorism. This well-researched book explores this focus and its implications. At the same time, the authors do not leave out the opinion of Muslim Americans, exploring their views about the American media and its influence, their attitudes toward non-Muslim Americans and, just as important, their opinions on post 9/11 U.S. counter terrorist policies and practices. This book not only serves students and scholars in the fields of Middle East studies, media studies, and international communication, but is also an enlightening read to anyone interested in mainstream Americas perception of Muslims.
