"...unless leaders of national organizations, thinktanks, mosques, schools, and Muslim politicians master our emotions and appetites, we disqualify ourselves from the burdensome role of leadership"

Dr. Abdullah bin Hamid Ali takes a close and fascinating
look at Muslim-American political engagement. With a detailed examination of American Muslim political history, Dr. Ali examines changes in the Muslim American community since 9/11, Muslim alliances with the LGBTQ, reactions to Black Lives Matter, and the upcoming presidential race between President Donald Trump and former Vice-President Joesph Biden.
This unique work is a must-read for all Muslims interested and engaged in the American political process.
