Abstract

"Young American Muslims: Dynamics of Identity." Nahid Afrose Kabir. Edinburgh University Press. December 2012. --- What is it like to be a young Muslim in America? Since 9/11 Muslim Americans have faced renewed challenges, with their loyalty and sense of belonging being questioned. Based on around 400 in-depth interviews with young Muslims, this book aims to discuss the similarities and differences between ethnic and racial groups such as Iranians, Arab Americans and African Americans. Maja Milatovic finds Kabir’s study is ultimately optimistic in its appreciation of the maturity and fair-mindedness of the participants which are crucial for establishing constructive dialogues in American society.
