Product Description

Born out of his own experiencing teaching college students about Islamophobia, professor, author and editor, Todd H. Green presents The Fear of Islam: An Introduction to Islamophobia in the West. This vital and compelling volume will provide readers with an engaging and informative introduction to the historical roots and contemporary manifestations of anxiety regarding Islam within the Western world.

Though the name may be new, the racism to which Green orients his readers is ancient, tracing back to the medieval legacy of religious polemics and violence. The Fear of Islam presents the complex historical route used in the West to propagate a fear of Islam that only weakens Western society, distorts perceptions and leads to prejudice. This timeless introduction to an ancient form of racism by Green is highly recommended for teachers, reporters, policy makers, scholars and pastors.
