46 CATEURA, LINDA BRANDI. Voices Of American Muslims.
Hippocrene Books, New York: 078181054X / 9780781810548 h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
In the days following September 11, 2001, little has been heard from American Muslims, who have suffered backlash, suspicion, and misunderstanding. To make matters worse, many Americans know little about their Muslim neighbors—now over six million in number—or about Islam. Questions linger, and the answers may be surprising: How have American Muslims responded to 9/11 and its aftermath? What are the basic tenets of Islam? What does the Koran say about violence and warfare? Why do many Muslims see America as the hope for the future of Islam? In this long-overdue book, Muslims from all walks of life introduce themselves and speak out on these and other pressing questions. Readers meet the head of New York's largest mosque, an actress, a cabdriver, and twenty other vivid subjects. Some are immigrants, some are native-born, and some are converts from other faiths. They speak loudly and clearly, declaring their individuality and deep devotion to the United States. Linda Brandi Cateura's interviews and first person narratives are frank and full of remarkable insights, and they make for an exceptionally warm and vitally informative book. "What is new about this volume? It is that it brings together the voices of many different American Muslims, female and male, Sunni and Shia, immigrant, African-American and white, scholar and imam, taxi-driver and activist, high school student and writer, in one volume. It allows American Muslims to speak for themselves." --from the introductory essay by Omid Safi.
