New Book: Islamophobia and the Law


This is a new book, Islamophobia and the Law (Cambridge University Press 2020), edited by Cyra Akila Choudhury and Khaled Beydoun. Here is the description:

Islamophobia and the Law is a foundational volume of critical scholarship on the emerging form of bigotry widely known as Islamophobia. This book brings together leading legal scholars to explore the emergence and rise of Islamophobia after the 9/11 terror attacks, particularly how the law brings about state-sponsored Islamophobia and acts as a dynamic catalyst of private Islamophobia and vigilante violence against Muslims. The first book of its kind, it is a critical read for scholars and practitioners, advocates and students interested in deepening their knowledge of the subject matter. This collection addresses Islamophobia in race, immigration and citizenship, criminal law and national security, in the use of courts to advance anti-Muslim projects and in law and society.

Chapter contributions by: Khaled Beydoun, Leti Volpp, Susan Akram & Kevin Johnson, Karen Engle, Cyra Akila Choudhury, Sahar Aziz, Abed A. Ayoub, Amna Akbar, Aziza Ahmed, Muneer Ahmad, Karen Ellis Rhone, Faisal Kutty, and SpearIt.
