In this study, several leading commentators examine the phenomenon of Islamophobia and ask how to tackle it. Charting recent media controversies and including interviews from Muslim journalists, this is a captivating insight into how Muslims are depicted in the West.
The demonization of Islam, images of Islam in the UK, representation of British Muslims in the national press, political correctness gone mad, a question of leadership: who speaks for British Muslims, etc. are some of the topics discussed in this book.
