As the U.S. Muslim population continues to grow, Islamic schools are springing up across the American landscape. Especially since the events of 9/11, many have become concerned about what kind of teaching is going on behind the walls of these schools, and whether it might serve to foster the seditious purposes of Islamist extremism. The essays collected in this volume look behind those walls and discover both efforts to provide excellent instruction following national educational standards and attempts to inculcate Islamic values and protect students from what are seen as the dangers of secularism and the compromising values of American culture. Also considered here are other dimensions of American Islamic education, including: new forms of institutions for youth and college-age Muslims; home-schooling; the impact of educational media on young children; and the kind of training being offered by Muslim chaplains in universities, hospitals, prisons, and other such settings. Finally the authors look at the ways in which Muslims are rising to the task of educating the American public about Islam in the face of increasing hostility and prejudice. This timely volume is the first dedicated entirely to the neglected topic of Islamic education.

Review:

This is an insightful and much-needed study of Islamic education, as well as of Muslims in the United States. By emphasizing how Islamic schools, Muslim Student Associations (MSAs), and universities play a role in the transmission of an Islamic education, these studies offer us a nuanced and sophisticated understanding of the importance of education as a social institution for American Muslims. The diversity and breadth of this volume is a valuable contribution to the fields of Islamic Studies and Multicultural Education. * Farha Ternikar, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Le Moyne College, Syracuse, NY *
