Gaskew (criminal justice, U. of Pittsburgh) uses interviews and participant observation-based methodologies to explore Muslim values and motivations in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The author begins by thoroughly explaining his research methodologies, and then provides a tutorial on Islamic beliefs and values to provide a context for the interviews. Subjects then describe their feelings and emotions in regards to confronting political Islam, ethnic diversity among Muslim Americans and the impact of The Patriot Act on their everyday lives. A final section is devoted to the policing of these communities and how Muslim Americans react to encounters from law enforcement. An extensive bibliography and glossary is provided for students and scholars who want to use this volume as a starting point for further research.
