Description - The North American Muslim Resource Guide by Mohamed Nimer
Exploring the mainstream American Muslim community up close, this guide briefly traces the history of Islam in the US and Canada, while it offers a fascinating and informative introduction to Islamic values and institutions. It assesses such issues as American Muslims' perception of themselves, their differences from and similarities to Muslims in Islamic countries, and how they have adapted to life and work in the secular societies of the US and Canada. This book also depicts the responses of Muslim media organizations, charities and community support structures in the wake of 9/11. Packed with data designed to serve researchers and Muslims alike, this unique resource includes useful tables and analyses of population statistics, immigration, and participation in the political process as well as an extensive directory of more than 130 pages that lists both websites and local contact details for the organizations that support today's mainstream US and Canadian Muslim community.
The most up-to-date, thorough guide to the Islamic communities of the US and Canada, The North American Muslim Resource Guide is an indispensable road-map for any reader who hopes to move past the boundary of ethnic and religious stereotypes to view the human face behind one of the fastest-growing and most vital populations in North America.
