Edited by Juliane (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) Hammer, Omid (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) Safi
Part of the Cambridge Companions to Religion series
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.
