CHOICE Review

From a leading expert on Muslims in the US comes the first edited collection of primary sources written by American Muslims. Spanning almost 200 years of US Muslim history, the sourcebook offers carefully selected excerpts, chapters, and documents, many written in the first person, some available for the first time, that paint a picture of the diversity of backgrounds, lifestyles, interpretations, and perspectives of American Muslims. The book's first half introduces readers to many facets of the history of Muslims in the US, while the second half addresses contemporary issues such as women and gender, Muslim politics and 9/11, and religious practice and spirituality. Each document is accompanied by a useful, reader-friendly introduction that helps contextualize the author and text. Editor Curtis gracefully navigates two challenges for such a collection: how to choose representative, meaningful examples from the vast body of available materials; and how to address the contemporary as part of history. He pledges to recognize the multitude of stories and voices of American Muslims (even though many in this book are prominent voices), and rejects artificial distinctions between African American or indigenous and immigrant Muslims. Summing Up: Essential. All public and academic levels/libraries. J. Hammer University of North Carolina at Charlotte
