ISLAMOPHOBIA The Ideological Campaign Against Muslims

-

“…the value of this book is incalculable, and Stephen Sheehi is due our deepest thanks and admiration for his courage in writing it.”
from the Foreword by WARD CHURCHILL

Islamophobia: The Ideological Campaign Against Muslims examines the rise of anti-Muslim and anti-Arab sentiments in the West following the end of the Cold War through GW Bush’s War on Terror to the Age of Obama. Using “Operation Desert Storm” as a watershed moment, Stephen Sheehi examines the increased mainstreaming of Muslim-bating rhetoric and explicitly racist legislation, police surveillance, witch-trials and discriminatory policies towards Muslims in North America and abroad.

“[A] brilliantly synthetic work; a gift to all who struggle to understand the anti-Muslim sentiment so pervasive in contemporary America. In a richly detailed yet accessible manner, Sheehi tackles post-Cold War American Islamophobia in all of its complexity, weaving together its liberal and neoconservative strands, and illustrating that we must interrogate it not as a problem of “prejudice” or “misunderstanding,” nor as a debate about Islam itself, but as an ideological paradigm used to structure and justify U.S. policies, both domestic and international.”
