American Muslims: The New Generation

November 4, 2002


On November 4, 2002 USA Today reported that Asma Gull Hasan "wrote her own book about the Muslim community in the USA, offering an insider's view of its history and inner dynamics, from Pakistani immigrants such as her parents (her dad's a physician) to black converts and others who identify with Islam. She weaves her own story into the narrative. American Muslims: The New Generation, was published in 2000. But it has found a growing mainstream audience since last year's terrorist attacks, when the nation's attention became riveted on the Muslim world. A new edition came out in July and is now being used as a textbook in several university classes around the country. It has been updated to address Sept. 11 and includes a study guide for students and book club readers."
