'A convincing demonstration of the threat Islamophobia poses to a pluralistic society and democratic values. An important resource for all who wish to understand the forces that manipulate our political process and discourse' -- Ingrid Mattson, Chair in Islamic Studies, Huron University College 'In a tightly-written, fast-paced narrative that feels like a thriller, Nathan Lean shows us just how deep the rabbit hole goes. Essential reading for anyone who wants a window into the origins of contemporary Islamophobia' -- Eboo Patel, author of Acts of Faith and Sacred Ground 'A lucid and detailed examination of the dark side of our politics. No one should take comfort from his conclusions about the outsized influence of extremists on our mainstream culture' -- Richard Wolffe, MSNBC political analyst and author of Renegade: The Making of a President 'In this provocative and engaging book, Nathan Lean meticulously untangles the dense web of fear merchants that have made Muslim bashing a cottage industry. Lean's is a battle against Islamophobia, one that he wages with a seamless and compelling narrative.' -- Juan Cole, author of Engaging the Muslim World 'A book of immense importance for our times' -- Reza Aslan, author of No God But God and Beyond Fundamentalism 'This book exposes the dirty secrets of those who try to manipulate public opinion against Muslims. It should be read by everyone who values truth and intercultural understanding' -- Mark Juergensmeyer, Professor of Global Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and author of Terror in the Mind of God: The Global Rise of Religious Violence 'An essential book for anyone who wants to understand the rationale and objectives behind those who foster racism against Muslims' -- Tariq Ramadan, Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at Oxford University and author of The Quest for Meaning 'This concise, accessible and illuminating book meets one of the most urgent needs of our time ... required reading' -- Karen Armstrong, author of A History of God, Islam: A Short History and Muhammad 'A brave and provocative book ... Highly recommended' -- CHOICE 'This book performs a true service for the nation' -- Glenn Greenwald, lawyer, journalist and author of No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA and the Surveillance State
