    Book Information

    Description

    The 'War on Terror' ushered in a new era of anti-Muslim bias and racism. Anti-Muslim racism, or Islamophobia, is influenced by local economies, power structures and histories. However, the War on Terror, a conflict undefined by time and place, with a homogenised Muslim 'Other' framed as a perpetual enemy, has contributed towards a global Islamophobic narrative. This edited international volume examines the connections between interpersonal and institutional anti-Muslim racism that have contributed to the growth and emboldening of nativist and populist protest movements globally. It maps out categories of Islamophobia, revealing how localised histories, conflicts and contemporary geopolitical realities have textured the ways that Islamophobia has manifested across the global North and South. At the same time, it seeks to highlight activism and resistance confronting Islamophobia.

    Reviews

    'Bakali and Hafez's edited volume illustrates the context-specific expressions of anti-Muslim racism as well as the symbiotic relationship between interpersonal and institutional racisms. Through this multi-scalar analysis, the edited volume does well to expand scholarship beyond critiques of Orientalism in Western societies by following the permutations of anti-Muslim racism and their articulation with preexisting racial formations in specific contexts.'
    Nicole Nguyen, The Middle East Journal

    'Naved Bakali and Farid Hafez's edited volume The Rise of Global Islamophobia in the War on Terror: Coloniality, Race, and Islam seeks to illuminate the complicated historical roots of Islamophobia and its current iterations, both global and local; all of these topics are covered, at least in part, in this ambitious collection. Overall, it is a successful tour of the world's anti-Muslim hostility.'
    Ilyse R. Morgenstein Fuerst, Reading Religion
