Description



Book Synopsis



American and Muslim Worlds before 1900 challenges the prevailing assumption that when we talk about "American and Muslim worlds", we are talking about two conflicting entities that came into contact with each other in the 20th century. Instead, this book shows there is a long and deep seam of history between the two which provides an important context for contemporary events -- and is also important in its own right.

Some of the earliest American Muslims were the African slaves working in the plantations of the Carolinas and Latin America. Thomas Jefferson, a slaveholder himself, was frequently called an "infidel" and suspected of hidden Muslim sympathies by his opponents. Whether it was the sale of American commodities in Central Asia, Ottoman consuls in Washington, orientalist themes in American fiction, the uprisings of enslaved Muslims in Brazil, or the travels of American missionaries in the Middle East, there was no shortage of opportunities for Muslims and inhabitants of the Americas to meet, interact and shape one another from an early period.



Review Quotes




"Fresh and topical. This collection on various aspects of the US-Islam relationship goes back to the beginning, and looks at the phenomenon from very different and yet ultimately complementary angles." --Mark Sedgwick, Aarhus University, Denmark

"This is an impressive book, and will become an essential reading for those teaching on the US relationship with the Muslim societies." --Cemil Aydin, Professor of History, UNC-Chapel Hill, USA
