Once considered primarily an Arab lifestlye and an alien faith, it has moved into a position of such size and strength that, according to one estimate, it will be the second largest religious community in the United States by the twenty-first century. This groundbreaking sociological study presents the experiences and problems of todays immigrant Muslims in the context of Islams 100-year history in America and in the wider scope of international Islam, and provides an an intimate view, elicited through numerous interviews and over three hundred questionnaires, of what it means to be a practicing Muslim in America at a time when Islam is in the forefront of international news. Organized into thematic chapters for easy use in a variety of courses, this book is a valuable resource for students and general readers alike.
