The portraits in this collection show ordinary Muslims coping with rapid change in the modern world and how they accomodate to it while maintaining their identity as Muslims.
"Provides in-depth portraits of ordinary Muslims in a variety of every-day contexts in order to overcome insidious Western stereotypes." - Richard Antoun, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology, State University of New York at Binghamton
"This is an outstanding collection of the personal lives of a variety of persons who are believers of Islam and for whom their religion is an important part of their daily lives. It is extremely well written and contains interesting stories that simultaneously convey a great deal of first hand material, as well as underlying aspects of Islamic life." - Barbara C. Aswad, Professor Emeritus, Department of Anthropology, Wayne State University
