American Islamophobia: Understanding the Roots & Rise of Fear

The term “Islamophobia” may be fairly new, but irrational fear and hatred of Islam and Muslims is anything but.

Though many speak of Islamophobia’s roots in racism, have we considered how anti-Muslim rhetoric is rooted in our legal system?

Using his unique lens as a critical race theorist and law professor, Khaled A. Beydoun captures the many ways in which law, policy and official state rhetoric have fueled the frightening resurgence of Islamophobia in the United States.
