Journey into America: The Challenge of Islam by Akbar Ahmed

What is American identity and how does the Muslim experience fit with and contribute to this ever-changing idea? In Journey into America, the author travels throughout the United States, speaking to ordinary citizens, Muslims and non-Muslims alike,Trying to discern exactly what American identity is. He explores how Muslims have historically fit into American life and how they have interacted with other Americans, such as members of other minority religions. This book also reveals how the U.S. Muslim experience, and the entire American experience, has changed over the years, particularly in the wake of the events of September 11, 2001. Ahmed uncovers not only the complexity of American identity, but he also finds, as anticipated by Thomas Jefferson, a pluralist society.
