Summary
"There has never been an America without Muslims"--So begins Amir Hussain, one of the most important scholars and teachers of Islam in America. Hussain, who is himself an American Muslim, contends that Muslims played an essential role in the creation and cultivation of the United States. Memories of 9/11 and the rise of global terrorism fuel concerns about American Muslims. The fear of American Muslims in part stems from the stereotype that all followers of Islam are violent extremists who want to overturn the American way of life. Inherent to this stereotype is the popular misconception that Islam is a new religion to America. In Muslims and the Making of America, Hussain directly addresses the stereotypes of Muslims following 9/11 and terrorism. Far from undermining America, Islam and American Muslims have been, and continue to be, important threads in the fabric of American Life. Hussain chronicles the history of Islam in American to underscore the valuable cultural influence of Muslims on American life. He then rivets attention on music, sports, and culture as key areas in which Muslims have shaped and transformed American Identity. America, Hussain concludes, would not exist as it does today without the essential contributions made by its Muslim citizens
