EDIT
The Many Faces of American Muslims
AIRED:
The Many Faces of American Muslims with Paul Barrett, Reporter at BusinessWeek and former editor at The Wall Street Journal In the wake of 9/11, Muslims in America are often caught in a religious subculture torn between moderation and extremism. Not only are they confronted with the task of reconciling faith with a permissive society, but they also face challenges to overcome stereotyping. The six million Muslims in the United States see themselves as anything but monolithic with significant differences in background and ideology. In American Islam: The Struggle for the Soul of a Religion, Paul Barrett interacts with Muslims in their homes, mosques, and private gatherings to introduce a population of striking variety. As thousands of American Muslims have been investigated and interrogated since 9/11?and as Islam has come under heavy attack worldwide?a better understanding of this segment of the population is essential - World Affairs Council of Northern Californiamoreless
