Berridge, Clara Warner
MetadataShow full item record
How do American Muslims accomplish this balancing act between various communities of identity? Is there anything about being a Muslim that precludes being American and what are the conflicting viewpoints on this debate within Muslim American communities? What issues do Muslim Americans unify around and when will communities of Muslims be given a platform of their own on which to portray their diversity in the face of the popular monolithic representation? Which are the largest hurdles and what are the rewards of this struggle in a country where freedom and tolerance are core values? The form that Islam in America will take in the future is dependent upon these issues, as is the role American Islam will eventually play in the larger world of Islam.
