Muslims’ Place in the American Public Square: Hopes, Fears, and Aspirations

Emily H. Mahon, Ph.D. candidate from CUNY Graduate Center, reviews Muslims’ Place in the American Public Square: Hopes, Fears, and Aspirations. The book is about the challenges faced by Muslims in America such as identity, participation and conduct in a non-Muslim society. It also discusses how American Muslims, who now number about six million and include a variety of languages, colors, and ethnicities, may face similar problems as the non-Muslim population in United States.
